The Avett Brothers performed their debut headlining performance Friday night at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Seth and Scott called upon opener Brandi Carlile for a trio rendition of “Murder In The City” (from their 2006 release, Gleam), a song that Carlile covers on her latest record, 2015’s The Firewatcher’s Daughter. Watch the performance above.

The Avett Brothers also paid homage to Merle Haggard, the legendary American country music singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who passed away on his birthday at the age of 79 on Wednesday, April 6th, performing Haggard’s “Mama Tried” (first released in 1968).

Watch their cover of “Mama Tried” below:
