Under the Covers: Joy Kills Sorrow - Such Great Heights (The Postal Service Cover)

Feels Like: Iron Horse, Good Graeff, Old Crow Medicine Show

The Americana Music Awards were last night and that means a weekend full of showcases and great live music here in Nashville. Last night, I saw the Lone Bellow, the Infamous Stringdusters, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, Ed Helms' Bluegrass situation (yep, that Ed Helms), and new comers like this band all under one roof. Joy Kills Sorrow performed their cover of The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights," and while others have covered this song before, this version definitely deserves its place in the canon.
