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

Scott Russell : Their harmonies are amazing.

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

Cynical 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!

Barnem13 : God they are good

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

CJ carp : I'm not sure how I got to this site I was watching " The Carter Family " but I'm glad I stumbled upon this. What a great performance and song. I've been a Emmylou and Gram Parsons fan since the 70's . I read a lot of comments where people write about how Gram Died way back in 73' or " Back Then " From someone who was there " Back then " " Back Then " might as well be Last Month because it doesn't feel any diferent and it's just a guess but from this Video I think the Great Emmylou feels the same

Luke Guy Reed : Emmylou , my all time favourite country female

Custer : Rätt i Tårkanalen. helt fantastiskt

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!

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.

TheColdWish : These girls are golden

Dennis Gilligan : A Class Act!

Magz Sara : Gram is never far from Emmylou, loved hearing them written and sung about together..

stuart hinde : patti smith Emmylou,who will they make cry next?

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

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

aintwurfnufnifitaintfree : What a fantastic and moving performance. It's good to know the spirit of Gram Parsons is still alive and well in the world.

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

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..
