This year, HGTV partnered with Paste as we headed down to Gulf Shores, Ala., for what we’d considered the best Hangout Music Fest to date. Beyond watching shows from some of our favorite artists, we filmed and recorded our own performances on the beach. Not just near it, but with our feet covered in Alabama’s pristine sands.
As Dawes continues to tour behind Nothing Is Wrong—one of our favorite albums of 2011—the Los Angeles-based band joined us on the beach for a two-song session at Hangout Music Fest. Watch the group play acoustic versions of “My Way Back Home” and “If I Wanted Someone.”
