I have been obsessed with this song since Magpie and the Dandelion was released.
"Watch us fly as loud as we can" is a beautiful line but it’s the chorus that I can’t get over.
I’m contemplating writing/bribing/threatening The Avett Brothers to play “Pretty Girl At The Airport” later this month in St. Louis. Would a well written letter get me far? setlist.fm says they have played it 3 times this year so I’m hopeful.
I created an Rdio playlist with every The Avett Brothers “Pretty Girl” track. “Pretty Girl From Michigan” will be dropping on 9/11 on their latest album,The Carpenter.
"Airport" is my favorite.
