These cows can’t get enough of Adam singing Fields of Athenry

A Californian man found his calling in life when he stood in front of a field of cows and serenaded them with the classic Irish song Fields of Athenry.

In a bizarre but charming video, Adam Gossett stands at the gate of a field of cattle in Co Cork and begins singing.

His voice can be heard above the gusting wind by the camera, and also by the several cows spread throughout the field.

One by one the cows walk over to the gate to listen to Adam, until they are crowded together like concert goers trying to get close to their idols onstage.

The Fields of Athenry is a favourite Irish song. The lyrics describe the suffering of the Irish people during the Famine, but the overriding tone is one of hope and pride.

It is sung beautifully by Adam, and the cows clearly liked it as they gathered around him to listen.

Once he had finished his performance, Adam thanked the cows for their support and said: “It’s so good to see you guys!”

The lady filming the show joked with Adam that the cows were his “fans”.

He turned back to face the camera and laughed at the crazy situation and said: “They’re my fans, I had to move to Ireland to get my fans, this is where they were, I’ve found them.”

Adam’s beautiful singing is reason enough take a look at the video, but have you ever seen anything like it from these cows?
