Earl Pickens & Family - The Joshua Tree (1/11/09)

On January 1st, 2009, Earl Pickens & Family recorded their country-music interpretation of the classic U2 album, The Joshua Tree.
Performed and recorded live in Earl's living room, this song-by-song rendition of the original album dismantles and reconstructs each song with upright bass, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, snare drum and haunting vocal harmonies.

In support of the album, Earl Pickens & Family made a couple of music videos. Here's "With or Without You", directed by Brianna Healey and Steve Gibson

And here's a home-made video for "One Tree Hill", featuring the New Jersey Turnpike…

Earl Pickens & Family, The Joshua Tree, can be bought at amazon, itunes and the like.
