MCMINNVILLE, OR (KPTV) - Video taken of an Oregon dad serenading cows at sunset has been shared widely on social media, and is making people smile all around the world.

In the video, Rick Herrmann plays Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely?” and the Champs’ "Tequila” on his saxophone. On Twitter, the soulful serenade has racked up more than 10 million views.

Herrmann spoke with FOX 12 about the video Friday and said he is shocked and overwhelmed by the response his video has received.

“It just seemed to resonate with so many people, so many people said they had a hard day and they watched it and it put a smile on their face,” Rick Herrmann said.

Herrmann tried to recreate the moment with FOX 12 Friday, but apparently, not all cows are fans. So, Herrmann and a FOX 12 reporter went further down the street in search of a familiar audience.

The same herd from Herrmann’s viral video came close for a second performance.

Herrmann says he started playing the saxophone about seven months ago and does it just to make people happy – he just didn’t know it would be this many people so soon.
