Rhiannon Conn on April 2, 2020 at 10:19 am

Jeff Roybal on January 30, 2020 at 11:31 pm

That was great! I love how happy Linc was when Britton played the solo.

Evelyn Mitchell on November 18, 2019 at 6:09 am

This is indescribably beautiful. Hearing you guys sing (and Britton play) Merle with so much love makes me cry every single time. I’m hoping y’all might consider releasing more Merle covers. I already love Merle, but listening to your covers just makes me love him even more.

Erika K on May 13, 2019 at 2:49 pm

So beautiful! ❤️ Link couldn’t be prouder of Britton either! That smile speaks a thousand words!

Ellie McNatt on May 4, 2019 at 8:49 pm

this just brought me to tears, you guys. completely in awe. ❤️

Beth Ward on May 3, 2019 at 7:27 am

Wow, just wow! I'm in complete awe over here.

Kat Conrad on April 30, 2019 at 1:48 pm

this is so beautiful

Breanna M McKamey on April 28, 2019 at 6:11 pm

God, I love their voices so much... Hope they'll keep putting up videos of them singing because we don't get to hear them sing for real enough.

StormCrow on April 28, 2019 at 2:18 pm

It's a good day for Merle

Joshua paul smith on April 28, 2019 at 11:45 am

Yes they can sing

Frederick Steinmiller on April 28, 2019 at 10:03 am

Wow guys, just wow. That was really good!

Joy Steinmiller on April 28, 2019 at 7:54 am

Beautifully done guys! Merle would be proud and flattered.

JoHana Anderson on April 28, 2019 at 12:40 am

This was so beautiful, I loved it. Thank you for sharing!

Deb Heidrich on April 27, 2019 at 5:47 pm

You guys are so talented!!! I love seeing the passion in Rhett and the sheer joy in Link!!!❤️❤️❤️

Randal Daniels on April 27, 2019 at 12:53 pm

My wife and I always knew you Guys had a serious side but Merle... And Link though man who knew you had such a deep voice when you want... Love it man made feel 6 years old listening to this with my Granddad ... Love ya Boys..

Michelle Zafrani on April 27, 2019 at 11:56 am

That was beautiful, thanks for sharing! I got a little misty eyed watching it after hearing you talk about the performance in Nashville on Ear Biscuits. I know we won't get to see this number in June, but I am so pumped for the Detroit show!

jakob Cleveland on April 27, 2019 at 8:31 am

i am a hige Merle Haggard fan and this song is absolutely amazing to see you guys cover

jakob Cleveland on April 27, 2019 at 8:31 am

huge*

Christy Hendrix on April 27, 2019 at 7:39 am

I hate asking even more of you, but I would buy the hell out of "real" music and covers you guys recorded. This was amazing. Thank you!

Melanie B Stocks on April 27, 2019 at 6:58 am

I had a VIP ticket for the Nashville show, and could not have been more excited for the show and the venue and the opportunity to meet Rhett and Link. The week before the show, my 80-year old Mom (with whom I watch GMM every morning over coffee) had a problem with her heart and, despite its being controlled, I didn't feel comfortable leaving on my Nashville road trip. After listening to the last Ear Biscuits and hearing verbalized what I already knew (that the combination of the venue, its ghosts, several hundred Mythical Beasts, music, and Rhett & Link created a touchstone event in the lives of everyone there), I moved past disappointed right on into bereft. Thanks to you guys for making so many people happier than they would be without you.

Kathryn Perry on April 27, 2019 at 6:56 am

Wow

Rebecca Batchelor on April 27, 2019 at 6:50 am

Just awesome. I love your voices together!

Sasha Robbins on April 27, 2019 at 5:50 am

😍 most fave video!

Alicia Whidden on April 26, 2019 at 5:25 am

You guys sound amazing!

Amelia Marshall on April 25, 2019 at 6:05 am

Loved seeing this video, especially after listening to the ear biscuit on Monday

Kimberley wakerley on April 24, 2019 at 10:56 pm

Omg i love this so much! I hope they do a livestream of one of the tours so we can all see it

Michele Parrett on April 24, 2019 at 9:52 pm

I love this! Thank you for sharing, so good. Link, your voice is beautiful and I could easily get lost in your singing.

Cath Smithston on April 24, 2019 at 1:20 pm

Fantastic! I loved Link looking chuffed as nuts when Britton did the solo!

Cate Abel on April 24, 2019 at 9:35 am

I'm so glad Link shared this with us. I had the great pleasure of being at the Ryman show. It was awesome!! Getting to hear them sing Merle was like a dream come true.

Alexandra Eeles on April 24, 2019 at 5:10 am

Thanks Link for sharing this with us. It was beautiful.

Heather Pellegrini on April 23, 2019 at 8:09 pm

This was pretty good sounding considering you guys are great singers! 😁

Tim Myers on April 23, 2019 at 7:41 pm

This was really great! It's awesome when comedians show you a different side of themselves like this. If you guys ever put out a cover album I'll be first in line!

Miriam Reed on April 23, 2019 at 6:33 pm

Wow love this. What a treat to see. Thanks Link!

Carol Stein on May 13, 2019 at 5:20 pm

After rewatching this for the 5th time, I just realized I never commented on how absolutely beautiful this cover is. Love it. Britton's guitar work is solid. I hope you guys will studio record this or at least recorded the live version from Ryman and release it.

Michelle Griffin on April 23, 2019 at 6:17 pm

Rhett and Link your harmonizing voices are amazing! When I was a little kid my grandpa would put country music on and with big headphones I would fall a sleep to take my naps. You reminded me of that great memory. You make an album of this tour I’ll buy it for sure.🥰 Also I hope to see Jared and Jensen from Supernatural on your show one day.

Dalton Tinsley on April 23, 2019 at 5:38 pm

I knew you guys were country singers!! Perfect!

Annette Gauwitz on April 23, 2019 at 4:55 pm

Beautiful! ❤️ Love love love this! Thanks for sharing it, Link!

Carol Allen on April 23, 2019 at 2:26 pm

Although I'm not the biggest fan of country music, this rendition of that song was beautiful. Well done guys, and thanks for sharing

Kaitlyn Poehler on April 23, 2019 at 2:24 pm

Allison Young on April 23, 2019 at 9:02 am

Absolutely beautiful.

GingerSnaps on April 23, 2019 at 8:56 am

This was really fun to see - Thanks for sharing!

Pamela Warren on April 23, 2019 at 7:49 am

Thanks for sharing this!! Speculation is that the Nashville show may be released to the public for purchase like the LA ToM ... 🤞

Ryan Crell on April 23, 2019 at 6:56 am

Loving these unexpected, extra videos!

Jessica Harris on April 23, 2019 at 5:48 am

It makes my heart feel full of happiness for you guys to know how much this show and covering Merle meant to you guys. Thank you for sharing this! It has easily become my favorite BTM yet. 💚

Guys that was heartstopping. I wish I could have been there. My excitement levels rose twofold for June.
Thank you for sharing this Link.

Michael Lanning on April 22, 2019 at 10:40 pm

Very Nice. Well Done.

Terese Feldmose Antonsen on April 22, 2019 at 10:11 pm

Love it❤️

Violet Attraczy on April 22, 2019 at 9:32 pm

Loved that. I am going to check about Merele. There is a greek solo in the song? WoW.

I love country music.

Jordan Drope on April 22, 2019 at 9:04 pm

Thank you so much for sharing Link! This is beautiful and I love seeing how proud you are of Britton! ❤️

Stephanie Cagle on April 22, 2019 at 8:51 pm

You have beautiful voices. Britton can play that guitar, y'all.
How lovely of you to share this with us!
Much love to you all.

Susan Miller on April 22, 2019 at 7:40 pm

My Dad lived and sounded like Merle. Both are gone now but your rendition was amazing. Thank you far more than you could know ❤️❤️

Kansas Corley on April 22, 2019 at 7:25 pm

Y’all really nailed it at the Ryman. I was there and may or may not have snagged some footage of both of the Merle covers. I’m not even a huge country music fan, but I get chills when I playback those performances. It was only my third time at the Ryman, but most definitely my favorite. You boys and Britton put on an amazing show!

Emery Mikel on April 22, 2019 at 7:02 pm

That was amazing! Thank you for sharing it with us. 😊

Kami Doak on April 22, 2019 at 5:34 pm

That was absolutely beautiful! You can feel the heart and soul you guys put into every note and every word. Driftwood is one of my favourites of Merle's, and your voices sound amazing singing it. Merle would be most proud. Thank you for sharing this <3. Shout out to Britton for that spot on solo :)

JM on April 22, 2019 at 5:12 pm

I love this! Beautiful and emotional. Thank you for sharing, guys! ^__^ Now excuse me while I'm gonna listen to this a 100 times tonight.

Laurie Owen on April 22, 2019 at 5:04 pm

Crying now! Thank you for sharing this awesomeness! I am reminded that you two have spectacular voices! Happy that you had the opportunity to sing it! Honored you shared it with us!

Molly Fowler on April 22, 2019 at 4:55 pm

I was so sad that I didn't get to see you at the Ryman... thanks for posting this! It was lovely!

Luca Millea on April 22, 2019 at 4:48 pm

You guys have great voices! Love this song! Please make another NY show because the other one was cancelled. I really want to see Rhett and Link Live! Thank you for sharing!

Summer Rayne Spivey on April 22, 2019 at 4:46 pm

You guys have amazing voices. <3

Emily Olsen on April 22, 2019 at 4:40 pm

Gabriella Giocomo on April 22, 2019 at 4:37 pm

This is so beautiful!!

Madison Christian on April 22, 2019 at 3:54 pm

thank you for sharing this with us, i keep watching it and i keep tearing up every time. this is beautiful, especially when you know how much of an impact merle has had on their lives. thank you.

Shell on April 22, 2019 at 3:49 pm

thank you so much for sharing this with us, it was a beautiful cover, made even more so by the fact that you got to sing it onstage at a place that means so mich to you by association. if the 16 year old rhett & link, who followed merle's tour bus into the night after a concert, could see themselves on that stage, they would be awestruck. so glad you got to experience that, and thank you again for sharing this moment with us ❤️

Rennie-Mae Rangel on April 22, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Absolutely incredible. It sure is a wonder to watch your idols pay tribute to theirs. Thanks for thinking to share this gorgeous moment with us, Link!

Stephanie Cunningham on April 22, 2019 at 2:42 pm

Thanks for sharing, Link. I've always wanted to hear you guys do some Merle covers, since his music means so much to you. It was beautiful. (Also, Britton's guitar solo was pretty much perfection.)

Jamica G Carver on April 22, 2019 at 2:01 pm

Y'all did a beautiful job singing driftwood. I was there at the Ryman and it was a wonderful show. I've been wanting to hear y'all sing a couple of merle songs so thank you. Now please put silverwings on here. Please. .Love you both

Victoria Doose on April 22, 2019 at 1:30 pm

You guys did a beautiful job covering something so meaningful to you, both at this soundcheck and at the Nashville show (from what I've seen). Thank you for sharing it with us here. ❤

Joey Roberts on April 22, 2019 at 1:25 pm

Amazing! You guys would make Merle proud!!

robyn Brown on April 22, 2019 at 1:21 pm

Tilde Blaaberg Rørvig on April 22, 2019 at 1:14 pm

Thanks for sharing this video! Hearing and seeing you guys playing a Merle song on stage (and knowing that it was at the Ryman) - I loved it. And Britton’s guitar solo! 🙌🏼

Oh wow, this was the show I went to! Wish I could've seen this in person!! Amazing!!!

Elizabeth Parsons on April 22, 2019 at 12:05 pm

Ahh I love this so much! You all three did wonderfully- definitely did such a classic song justice.

Rachel Anne Droke on April 22, 2019 at 11:57 am

Thank you for sharing! I had so much fun at the Nashville show, and y’all singing Merle Haggard’s songs made it that much more amazing and special!
