Bonnie “Prince” Billy covers Merle Haggard with his dogs – Watch

This is pretty amazing from Pitchfork over the weekend. It beats Marc Métral and his talking dog Wendy. They report: “Bonnie “Prince” Billy, aka Will Oldham, gave morning television viewers in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky a taste of his forthcoming Merle Haggard tribute album, Best Troudabor. He appeared on local morning show “Great Day Live!” earlier this year to perform a cut that didn’t make the project’s final tracklist. And he wasn’t alone. Oldham brought along two dogs (Silver and Gold), who gamely sat beside him while he and his wife Elsa performed “Bad Actor.” That track appears on Haggard’s 2010 album, I Am What I Am. Best Troubador arrives May 5 via Drag City. In March, Oldham released a 360-degree VR video for the track, “Mama Tried.”
