Few bands can match the energy of The Avett Brothers. Relentless touring, releasing almost an album a year for the last 10 years, their work ethic seems more akin to the artists of yesteryear than to today’s one-album-every-three-years darlings. Fitting, then, that they should dig into the past in their recent appearance on CMT Unplugged.

Looking like they misplaced their razors, the brothers cover Roger Miller’s classic ode to the man in the middle “Where Have All The Average People Gone.” They slow the track down, making it sound like, well, an Avett Brothers song. Gone is the familiar Roger Miller jaunt, replaced with a wistfulness found in songs like “Murder in the City.” Watch the video below, via Rolling Stone.
