For about a month now they’ve been showing up all over my YouTube suggested feed. The Petersens are a family bluegrass band out of Branson, Missouri and they are INCREDIBLY LEGIT. The band members are four siblings – Katie, Ellen, Matt and Julianne – their mom, Karen, and family friend Emmett Franz.
Those harmonies and instrumentation hits you from the first note and you’re hooked – I don’t care which song you’re listening to.
This morning, their cover of Shania Twain‘s “You’re Still the One” showed up in my feed, so I clicked and watched half-awake pre-coffee, and was floored.
Easily the best cover of that song you’re probably ever going to hear.
This is one talented family.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
