Video: Shovels & Rope Perform “Coping Mechanism” on Letterman


First Wade Bowen on Conan earlier this week and now another great country act got a chance to perform on the national stage. The fantastic duo of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent of Shovels & Rope performed “Coping Mechanism,” a finalist for Country Perspective’s 2014 Song of the Year, off of their phenomenal 2014 album Swimmin’ Time, which was also a finalist for Country Perspective’s 2014 Album of the Year, on the Late Show with David Letterman last night. They knocked it out of the park of course. Based on the reactions I saw on Twitter, there were a lot of other people who felt the same. I hope they picked up a bunch of new fans and I find it hard to fathom how anyone can’t be a fan of this duo after hearing their music. When they found out they were going to play on Letterman again, they were pretty thrilled about it.

If you haven’t heard their Swimmin’ Time album, I highly recommend you go check it out. Also what did you think of their performance here?

    Wow! That was fantastic. I’ve never seen a live video of them before, and it makes them that much more impressive!
