Inspired by Cee Lo's recent cover of the friggin' gorgeous Band of Horses' track, "No One's Gonna Love You," the South Carolina boys have reciprocated with a cover of Cee Lo's "Georgia." And oh yeah, they got the UGA Redcoat Marching Band to back 'em up.
Lead singer (and the preferred voice to the soundtrack of my life), Ben Bridwell explains how the cover came about: "This began as a very random idea I had on my dad's patio after we watched our beloved Georgia Bulldog football team get robbed of a win at the hands of the referees and LSU last year. I knew I wanted to pay homage to my favorite team in song but didn't have any idea how to begin. Once I heard Cee-Lo's 'Georgia,' I was immediately smitten and figured that's as good as any tribute to any state I've ever heard."
You be the judge!
