WATCH: My Morning Jacket Cover Gil Scott-Heron and Bing Crosby

21 Dec

Wrapping up their winter tour dates, Kentucky rockers My Morning Jacket played one final show at New York’s famed Madison Square Garden last week. The band has been known to play covers while on stage, and this show was no different. During their performance, the Louisville outfit played a cover of the late Gil Scott-Heron‘s “The Bottle,” as well as a cover of Bing Crosby’s Christmas classic “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” which was included on the band’s holiday-themed iTunes session. The Bing Crosby classic also saw their opening act Band of Horses join in to play along. You can check out video footage of their covers after the jump.
