So… The Cleverlys. Somehow making bluegrass covers of Black Eyed Peas and The Bangles totally awesome. @MusicRow
Arkansas’ homegrown grassers, The Cleverlys’ debuted their twisted sense of humor and stellar musicianship at this year’s CMA Fest. The ‘family’ band performed at the SportsZone Stage, The Visit Music City Stage, The WSM Durango Acoustic Stage and received a standing ovation for their set Friday evening at LP Field.
“…humor-filled bluegrass-ish band The Cleverlys gave the festival something it has lacked: stuff to pay attention to in between superstars. Unfortunately, Harris and The Cleverlys disappeared midway through the evening.”~The Tennessean
“Tonight was a good, good night: For some, CMA Fest is very serious business. For bluegrass cover outfit The Cleverlys, which used its time playing during changeovers at Friday’s LP Field show to roll out their version of the Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feeling, among others, opportunity can be found in the most unlikely of places.”~USA Today
The guys also signed at several booths during Fan Fair and it’s sure to have added to their YouTube (or as Digger calls it FaceTube) downloads of over 1 million views.
