[video] Earl Pickens & Family - "With or Without You"

Last year Earl Pickens & Family released a song-for-song cover of U2’s classic The Joshua Tree. What began a few years back as a one-off tribute show commemorating the landmark album’s 20th anniversary evolved into a full band project, and the resulting album was both an homage and a re-imagining of the album as a country classic. One of the highlights is their take on “With Or Without You”, which emphasizes the sadness in the lyrics with a stripped-down arrangement (that’s Bruce W. Derr on guitar) and some beautiful harmonizing between Earl and Jessie Yamas. Fans of the original album and/or country music should not miss out on this one.
