The Avett Brothers, led by siblings Seth and Scott Avett, released a proper debut in 2002, then went on to release five studio albums and two live compilations before breaking through to a mainstream audience with 2007's Emotionalism. For a follow-up, The Avett Brothers worked with legendary producer Rick Rubin on I and Love and You. The band performs three of its best-known songs here.
