Last night, the rest of America got to see what we've known here in Oklahoma for years: John Moreland will move you.
The Tulsa musician's powerful lyrics, skillful fingerpicking, and gravelly vocal delivery collectively have the ability to turn you into a puddle of tears. And, you'll come running back for more.
Rolling Stone called it "an emotionally riveting performance."
See it for yourself below.
"Break My Heart Sweetly" is featured on Moreland 2013 album, In the Throes.
