The guys of Bon Iver really enjoy performing covers. Along with releasing studio takes of Peter Gabriel and Bonnie Raitt tunes, they tend to also dive into their seemingly random catalog of personal favorites to perform in concert. Case in point: their version of Don Williams’ sweet ode to a lover, “If Hollywood Don’t Need You (Honey I Still Do).” Stuff like this is obviously in Justin Vernon and company’s wheelhouse, though the instrumentation is clearly different from what we’re used to hearing from Bon Iver. They nail the cover, though, which leaves us wondering when they’ll record a full-on country album or EP.
