This Dad Playing The Sax For A Bunch Of Cows Is The Energy We Need

Even cows love "Careless Whisper."

Posted on June 28, 2019, at 1:35 p.m. ET

This is Rick Herrmann, a dad in Lafayette, Oregon, who gave a very wholesome sunset saxophone performance for a bunch of cows.

Herrmann started learning how to play the saxophone seven months ago, after years of longing.

"Just one day I was like, 'Why not now? I’m going to get one,'" he told BuzzFeed News.

He said he's gotten "OK" after seven months. The other night, his wife had the brilliant idea to try out his new talent for a field of local cows.

It was truly pretty magical.

my parents are such goofs they drove out to the backroads so my dad could play the cows the songs he’s been learning on the saxophone pt.1

The cows loved it!

"First of all, I love cows. I spent my summers on a dairy farm," said Herrmann. "I had a feeling they’d come up if I started to play."

He treated them to a little "Isn't She Lovely" before getting into some "Careless Whisper."

"'Careless Whisper' is the first song everyone learns on the saxophone," he said.

He then finished the set with "Tequila." If you listen closely, you can hear a neighbor chiming in on the chorus.

His performance has now gone viral, thanks to his daughter Erin, who shared videos of it on Twitter. It's not only the cows that love it.

"I just want to make people smile. I just didn’t think it would be so soon, and to so many people," said Herrmann.

Not every animal is a fan, however.

"I practice at home, and my dog I don’t think is liking it very much," he said. "She chewed up all my reeds."
