Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors shared a live cover of Adele’s “When We Were Young.” The Americana outfit introduced the song while on tour with Darius Rucker last summer.

Drew Holcomb detailed the decision to cover the track off Adele’s 2015 album, 25:

“I’ve loved Adele since the first time I heard ‘Chasing Pavements.’ She is the voice of our generation, and one of the best of all time. When I told the band I wanted to cover ‘When We Were Young’ on the tour they thought I was crazy. I’ll never forget the first time we tried it was during soundcheck on a show opening for Darius Rucker outside of Atlanta. Ellie and the kids were in the empty amphitheater listening to us soundcheck… She and the kids loved it, and I knew we were on to something. Going out into the audience every night to sing my heart out was a blast. Thanks for the memories of this tour yall.”
