Really well-written and eloquently stated; I think this article straddled that delicate line between crediting the band for the ways in which it's augmented folk music in the South while simultaneously overshadowing its origins. I'm not an Avetts fan, but know plenty who are. I guess you can't fault people for liking the easiest point of access to a style of music, even if that point of access lacks much nuance, traditionalism or innovation.
