bloocheez3 : Standing ovation from Paul Simon. Emmylou brought to tears. These girls are a force of nature. I hope they stay with us for a long time.

Theorimlig : The weird old man bobbing with the music next to her is the king of Sweden. :P

RetroRich : While this is very emotional, and I absolutely love First Aid Kit; I got to say with all respect, that Emmylou Harris is still strikingly beautiful.

Blaire Ronzel : I really like the old souls of First Aid Kit....but I saw Emmylou in tears and this just floored me. Wise beyond their years.

Scott Murphy : Seeing Emmylou in tears just brought me to tears. I have been in love with her and her music since  the very early 1970's, something my wife has just had to learn to live with. Emmylou was and is at the very top of her craft and her voice, like a fine wine has only gotten better with time. She is CLASSIC country, not that pop with a country twang that passes for country today. She is and always will be a country music icon. These two young women here do her proud, they both have a terrific musical career ahead of them. And all of this comes from someone who has played classic rock (what people of my age just call "rock") for the last 45 years

rodsreel : My God - there is hope for music and you can see it in the eyes of the legends sitting in the audience. Well done girls.

celt67 : That guy applauding near the end with the green plate didn't eat his carrots.

Noah McDaniel : Must be incredible to watch young talent say you inspired them to write an absolutely beautiful song, and even threw your name into it!

Kerry Evans : Gram Parsons is smiling down too........after all those years.....just great these kids got it and understood.....incredible .... Greetings from IRELAND 😉 salamat for this gem. ...

Patrick McKeegan : Sibling harmony is so special, can't beat genetics...Great song.

Dominic Hand : Just in case the vocal doesn't wreck you, we'll chuck in a pedal steel to make sure

Old Welsh Bloke : I love death metal, grindcore etc but these guys are special. They sing from the heart like Tori Amos and Beth Gibbons who I also like. In their own way they are as intense as any other band!

Scott Russell : Their harmonies are amazing.

Luma Jochims : I think Emmylou might need a first aid kit.

Douglas Dahlström : Not so much into country, but this is obviously amazing. I just wonder if I'm right about the names in the chourus. Emmylou - Emmylou Harris June - June Carter Gram - Gram Parsons Johnny - Johnny Cash Is that right? :)


Dirk Huylebroeck : If angels could sing,it would sound like this.

Ruth Silva : These girls are just a breath of fresh air with their beautiful voices and harmonies. They have a great sound even if it is a bit country which I am not a fan of but with music like this I could listen to it all day!!!

Musicrelic : Well you know, Emmylou, many times your quite, wonderful ballads have been strong enough to gush tears from others. I suspect part of the power here was the bluegrass feel, the lyrics, the age of the performers. I keep saying it, music doesn't need to be over the top, electric to just blow through people. REAL, REAL, REAL. It has to be real. These 2 certainly qualify there!

Ken Scar : Well tonight I learned I love some band called First Aid Kit. Watching this was the loveliest experience I've had online in a long time <3

Bengt Johansson : Emmylou is sitting next to the king of Sweden, Carl Gustav. Emmylou received the Polar Music Prize i Sweden. She was really worth it!

TheLions1957 : Totally unfair...their English is better than mine and they are from Sweden! Hugely talented performers...

Saskia Cornell : Beautiful, those kids are going places. What a wonderful dedication to Emmylou, as soon as she started crying I did too. Love Emmylou <3

ForViewingOnly : Honestly, this sound of two angels singing would reduce anybody to tears. Beautiful voices, and a live performance that would match a highly-edited studio take by any other artists.

JustMe WingAnAPrayer : This song you wrote about a few of our Legendary Country Singers is unreal. The words you wrote echo emotions in my heart of lost youth and loves, from an era that was New and Alive filled with so much promise ☮️and happiness. Yah, and when I woke up.....I incredibly found myself to be 70 years old wondering where'd it go? There are a lot of us out here today with those 🤔wonders. Oh well. Anyway you girls with your talented vocals and harmonies not to mention the awesome musicians and killer Steel Guitar, can not be rivaled by anyone any age. I am so glad your Dad is involved with your careers, he will always have your backs unlike some industry people. I love all of your songs even though most bring me to tears for one reason or another, but that's a good thing. It means life, and health ills hasn't beaten all the love out of me.🤗 You go Girls, enjoy every day of your success, even when it gets hard some days. You all bring true music back into millions of lives. 💕

Dracopticon : Båda systrarnas röster tillsammans bär verkligen vemodet fram i underbara toner. Both the sisters combined voices really carries the feeling through.

brettfavreify : That's what talent sounds like American Idol.

neurofire : I've yet to see or hear something from J n K that I just don't love. Wow. How good is that. What a gracious a tribute - and how graciously received.

Stephanie B : I saw them Saturday 14 October 2017 at Stubbs in Austin. They closed their set with this song. It was a night I will never forget. You could tell that they not only loved what they were doing but they loved that they were doing it together. They harmonized like angels, if you get a chance to see them do your self a favor and go.

llrsensei : Dear sisters, Klara and Johanna Söderberg, thank you for bringing tremendous soul to the singing of this song to honor women performers who paved the way for younger women artists like yourselves. Thank you for singing from the heart and interpreting the music with depth of spirit, energy, and compassion. As a musician and poet, I appreciate all you are doing and look forward to hearing you in person someday soon. May God bless and keep you always.

Weasel Cliffstone : those are two very very classy girls up there singing their hearts out

Jon Doe : This song must bring up so many memories for Emmylou, from her incredible life and career. And of all the greats that shaped her life.

David Guy : So beautiful, moved more than Emmylou to tears let me tell you. Loved Emmylou since forever.

suicideking0316 : I heard these two wonderful girls do this song on Sirius radio a few years back ago and it brought me to tears then also, It still does now. It is one of the most soulful songs ever. I will never tire of this work of art song. Thank you Girls!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

andyinoregon : I just lost it watching this. Incredible performance captured so very well by the video crew. Thanks to all involved.

D Grundman : Good god, Emmylou is SO gorgeous, such a high class act. Just an amazing human being, she gives me faith in humans again . . .

gerhard sochor : Lyrics : Oh the bitter winds are coming in And I'm already missing the summer Stockholm's cold but I've been told I was born to endure this kind of weather When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too No, I'm not asking much of you Just sing little darling, sing with me Now so much I know that things just don't grow If you don't bless them with your patience And I've been there before, I held up the door For every stranger with a promise But I'm holding back, that's the strength that I lack Every morning keeps returning at my window And it brings me to you and I won't just pass through But I'm not asking for a storm I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too No, I'm not asking much of you Just sing little darling, sing with me And yes I might have lied to you You wouldn't benefit from knowing of the truth I was frightened but I held fast I need you now at long last I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too No, I'm not asking much of you Just sing little darling, sing with me I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too No, I'm not asking much of you Just sing little darling, sing with me Just sing little darling, sing with me

Plumpy : Third time they made a super star cry.

TheColdWish : These girls are golden

Will Thompson : Why do I get the feeling that 30 years from now these two will be the ones sitting at a table for a tribute concert where a bunch of young preformers are playing their music?

Tango Bango : These young girls are not only quite talented, but also have a lot of class!

denise serafini : So so lovely. I was really blessed to see Emmylou and Gram perform at the Quiet Knight back in the 70's. Wonderful tribute to some of the greats. Miss u Gram, Johnny and June..

Neil Morris : Emmy Lou is ageless !

Tiedyed Owl : At the beginning I thought she didn't like it-then realized she was holding back tears that whole time.

Mindub : 42 people have no souls...
