    I just stumbled on this while looking for some new music. What an amazing duo!

    Love the chorus:
    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 darlin’. Sing with me

    Love this line from a recent review: "If more women in their teens and early twenties listened to Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash, the word “Snooki” may never have been uttered outside of Jersey and our vernacular and world would be better off."

    This is a cool tune that I first heard on the Current 89.3FM. They don't know who Snooki is....they are Swedish! :D

    Really dig their stuff. This song was a free download on iTunes last week. I dig their cover of Fleet Foxes' Tiger Mountain Peasant Song.

    But a tribute may be the next best thing!
