Members of UGA’s Redcoat Marching Band joined indie rock’s Band of Horses on “Georgia,” a cover of a Cee Lo Green song. Band of Horses singer/guitarist Ben Bridwell came up with the idea after watching the Bulldogs play last year. “This began as a very random idea I had on my dad’s patio after we watched our beloved Georgia Bulldog football team get robbed of a win at the hands of the referees and LSU last year,” he said on the band’s website. “I knew I wanted to pay homage to my favorite team in song but didn’t have any idea how to begin.” Then Bridwell heard “Georgia,” which appears on Green’s new album “The Lady Killer.” The album also includes a cover of Band of Horses’ “No One’s Gonna Love You,” so Bridwell decided to return the favor by covering “Georgia.” “Incorporating the Redcoat Marching Band was just the icing on the cake!” he said. At press time, “Georgia” was available for download at http://www.bandofhorses.com/georgia.
