Avett Brothers Unplug, Get Their Roger Miller On

The Avetts are part of CMT’s ongoing Unplugged series. Their session premieres tomorrow night (July 13) on the country music channel. Intriguing band, right? But even more intriguing is their cover of “Where Have All the Average People Gone?,” an overlooked philosophical ditty by master Nashville songsmith Roger Miller. Rolling Stone has the clip. The Avetts have been doing this one for awhile, now, and it’s a strong choice.  Here’s the original below, and above is Scott Avett having a go alone.
