Miranda Lambert, Billie Joe Armstrong Pay Tribute to Phil Everly at the 2014 Grammy Awards [VIDEO]

Miranda Lambert and Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong joined forces to pay musical tribute to Phil Everly at the 2014 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Jan. 26).

Everly and his older brother Don shot to fame as the Everly Brothers in the late ’50s with hits including ‘Bye Bye Love,’ ‘Wake Up Little Susie,’ ‘All I Have to Do Is Dream,’ ‘Bird Dog’ and ‘Cathy’s Clown.’ The brothers were among the progenitors of the rock and roll era, but their influence also extended well into country.

Phil Everly passed away on Jan. 3 at the age of 74, due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Lambert and Armstrong paid tribute to his legacy with a rendition of ‘When Will I Be Loved,’ a song that Linda Ronstadt also famously covered in the ’70s.

They joined voices over a simple accompaniment of Armstrong playing an acoustic guitar, reminiscent of the Everlys at their peak.

Neither is any stranger to the music of the Everlys; Lambert has often covered ‘When Will I Be Loved’ live, while Armstrong joined forces with Norah Jones in 2013 for a project titled ‘Foreverly,’ on which the pair re-imagined the 1958 Everly Brothers album ‘Songs Our Daddy Taught Us’ in its entirety.
