    Nice! Been a fan of KT Tunstall since I first saw her live solo performance on Later with Jools Holland back in 2004. This is awesome!

    This is great seen KT here in Dublin last year when she backed simple minds and in fact it was the night before Eddie Vedder played Dublin with Glen Hansard.

    I'm always skeptical about Tom Petty covers, but this was really good. It's refreshing when someone covers a song and brings something new to it.

    This is a great cover. I've been a fan of KT since the beginning, I've always loved her voice and she really nails this.
    Plus, more Mike is always a good thing!

    Just played this video for my 3rd grade students and they loved it. Wish I could have sent in their picture for the video, when they made signs and marched around our school to protest gun violence.
