"Lelia ... we've got beards, we've got guitars and you're going down," says Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie, who also criticizes Broussard for not citing his band as an influence alongside her other Canadian favorites, Feist and Alanis Morissette. Lelia quips back, "Listen Dogs, nobody wants to see a bunch of bearded, sweaty Canadian dudes on the cover of Rolling Stone."
Besides having a bit of fun playing enemies, Broussard and the Sheepdogs sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about how their lives have changed since the beginning of the contest and how the pressure has been increasing for their upcoming performance at Bonnaroo. "It's gotten a lot crazier and a lot more things are happening and it feels like all of a sudden everything is different now," Broussard says. "And the busyness is 10-fold, which is great!"
The Sheepdogs, meanwhile, have experienced a lot of love back in their native Canada. "Some guy that drives a truck, like a big semi-trailer hauling lumber made a makeshift 'Vote Sheepdogs' banner, and hung it from the back of his truck. So multiple people took pictures of it and sent it to us over Twitter," Currie says.
