WATCH: Man serenades cows with saxophone cover of 'Careless Whisper'

@erinmherrmann

Rick Herrmann's first saxophone 'performance in front of a live audience' has cows coming over for a closer look.

When Rick's daughter, Erin, posted a video of her dad playing saxaphone in front of a field of cows, she didn't expect the reaction to be as big as it was; the original twitter post has been viewed over 11 million times.

The video was filmed outside Lafayette, Oregon, where Rick's family travelled solely to play for cows.

"I’m so surprised at how far the video has spread! I’ve gotten a lot of comments about how the video has turned people’s day around, how it’s impacted people positively." Erin wrote.

"I’ve also had quite a few people share that they were going to stop eating meat because of it."

The video was even noticed by well-known American saxophonist, Kenny G, who said it was 'awesome' and that 'we all have to start somewhere.'

Not bad for someone who has only been playing seven months...
