  • So when is Merle gonna release a CD? He’s certainly building quite the body of work.

  • Perhaps Merle Hazard will go on book tour with you!

  • Hi Ann,
    I would love to get a copy of this to show at the national meeting of Presbyterians this coming week — I’ve got an environmental booth that would be great – any chance of getting the file?
    Check us out at prcweb.org

  • Awesome. And so inspiring. Captures the zeitgeist as only Nashville can.

  • I am speechless.

  • Wow. The face of country music sure is changing… Love the knitted hemp sandals

  • Whoever this guy is, you gotta fall for a knitted sandal reference in the lyrics. sigh.

  • So, did you notice Al Gore singing back-up? Gotta love the production values!
    That man SERIOUSLY owes you yarn money!

  • love it loveit!

  • Love the video and the message behind it. What a talented group of singers, animators (sp?) and song writers!!

  • Outstanding! Has Al seen it yet? Animation is really fun!

  • Love it! And I actually have a friend who’s husband left her with two tiny kids — and one of his parting shots was that “she didn’t care enough about recycling”. The “other woman” he met at the Save the Whales meetings apparently did.

  • OMG, this is awesome! I love Al Gore singing back-up…what a talented guy Merle is!

  • merle is inciting millions to recycle as i type this. He’s obviously next in line for the nobel. Maybe he and al can get together and compare medals!

  • Another triumph! I’m already working on some “I Heart Hazard” T-shirts! Will he be at Bonaroo next year?!

  • That’s too funny!I have to send this to my very “green” daughter!….. it sure must be fun to live in your house!Wendy

  • ‘knitted hemp’. A classic. But that blonde doesn’t look too much like you, does she??? x x

  • My heart aches for poor Merle!
    Fantastic video, and I love the artwork & the talented backup singers. But Merle has my heart, sigh. (Don’t tell my musician husband.)

  • With three hits on record when are we going to see the album??

  • wow – that was terrific. the talent in your family is awe-inspiring – – we expect BIG things from those two boys of yours…..I wonder what and when their web debut will be!

  • I think I went to school with the “new” boyfriend . . . lots of tie-dye and hemp of all sorts at that school. Too funny for words!

  • At least someone in the Shayne fambly now has her some Internet!
    I am hummin’ that song and thinking of Al Gore…

  • Delightful! Original! Clever! Funny!

  • I have visions of #1, #2 plastic bottles & post-consumer recycled cardboard in my head. WOWIE-Neat-O Ann! I love it! VG

  • Fabulous!!!

  • I love “dreams” rhyming with “Prius” – I think it only works with Merle’s dreamy lightly-southern twang.
    Fantastico!

  • My 11-year-old rushed to put Merle on his ipod. We both love Al Gore’s funny eye expressions. This was a hoot.

  • Awesome!

  • Great animation! What fun! When does the tour begin for Merle and the Boys?!

    PS – Y’all really slimmed down Al Gore! He should thank you profusely!

  • We all enjoyed the song and animation so much! My boys and husband laughed just as much as I did. Thanks so much – it’s always good to share a chuckle.
