Mandy B : I don't think these people realized what they were experiencing. Single-handedly one of the most powerful acoustic performances you can find on YouTube.

Dennis Hushour : I am 52 years old....only thing I can say is me teary know greatness when you hear it. Music that truly touches your soul is so have the "gift"

sc@r : This is what i call music. Not having to do a million different runs and bristles to show off. But just pure... voice.

Mike Wright : Driving home after my son was born, this was the first song I heard on my car radio. He is gone now but the song lives on. It will always be special to me and this was an amazing cover. Thank you

Dc Mihelic : The official cover of this song is great but I actually prefer this version, it shows what a strong voice Brent has without editing and he's yummy.

madalynn xgrady : I wish a cool band would just drop by my house. lol

Keith Bloemendaal : 347 idiots _disliked_ this video....

Herman A : I'm old (47) and Shinedown kind of slipped by me. After finally hearing this freak lead singer of theirs, Brent Smith, I'll make the bold statement that Smith sings as well as ANYBODY who's ever graced the great stage of rock-n-roll. Respect.

meals123 : So many singers need the studio to sound good. He is in a living room and sounds great! Love it!


Edward Wermann : Recently lost my mom, my whole life she has basically told me these words. His rendition to this song is absolutely amazing and heartfelt.

Musical One : "Simple Man" Lynyrd Skynyrd Song Covered by Brent Smith and Jasin Todd This is a home video shot at a party in which Brent Smith (vocals) and Jasin Todd (guitar) of the band Shinedown were guests. The performance really shows off what a beautiful song this is and how talented Brent and Jasin are. There are no effects used. It's just lead vocal and acoustic guitar. (Try to block out the people who were talking for the first few seconds of the song, and just listen to the music.)

David Wood : still my favourite version.

BTKnPNW : truly one of the all time single greatest performances plugged or unplugged...HE GOES TO THE STRATOSPHERE EFFORTLESSLY

Stari Night : Oh wow....I don't get the chills very often. The vocals on this young man are simply amazing. His voice control..well, he's a master at his art...just a fantastic cover that rivals the original..thank you so much for sharing. And the guitar man was spot on, playing to perfection .....

Danny Valentine : I’m so jealous I didn’t get to see that live. This is the greatest version of this song hands down. This is REAL fucking talent!

Tristen Caudill : every single rapper/hip hop/pop star wishes they could do this without the auto tune lol, though there are a very small few that maybe could

Frank Steen : Wow. Chills at 3:54. What a voice!

Elvida Dahl : Fire, Feeling, Passion, and Pain. His voice is haunting.

Scott Bormann : The people talking with them singing is just rude, should sit back & absorb it brother!

Samantha Runfola : It's amazing how much I listen to this particular song....I dedicated this to my lil'man (7yrs old) and he has listened to the words intently, so I truly do believe that he gets the powerful message the lyrics are conveying. Possessions of materialistic form will NEVER compare to the fulfillment that one holds within their soul from living an altruistic, simple life! :-)
