Watch Seth Avett Cover the Country Classic ‘Mining for Coal’

This fall, The Avett Brothers will release their new album Closer Than Together, but to hold you over, Seth Avett has performed a cover of the country classic “Mining for Coal.”

Originally from the 1989 Randy Travis album No Holdin’ Back, the song has everything you’d want from a weepy country ballad: A love story, Appalachian imagery and some Americana-inspired poetry.

Their album Closer Than Together releases in October.
