Avett Brothers Get Key To The City At Cheyenne Homecoming Concert
Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr presented her first official "key to the city" last night to native son Scott Avett. It was a triumphant homecoming for the Avett Brothers singer who was born in Cheyenne and a special moment for his parents who also attended the concert.
When the band took the stage, they delivered a 26-song set including their first live performance of "Old Wyom" since 2011. Between songs, Scott Avett also shared the story of a family road trip where he and his brother Seth were spooked by a rattlesnake.
"We stopped here in Wyoming. My dad wanted to show us the house where we lived" he told the sold-out crowd at the Cheyenne Civic Center. "As soon as we hit the fence post, it was like (rattling sound). I was like, I'm in the van, I'll see you later."
To commemorate the homecoming concert, Scott collaborated with artist Brian Bojo for a limited-edition poster featuring lyrics from the song "Murder In The City".
