Earlier this week, Jack White played at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, during which he invited some special guests on stage. As part of the (rather lengthy) encore for his set, White invited The Raconteurs on stage to play two tracks before performing alongside friends and past collaborator, Loretta Lynn.
Fan footage from the show sees The Raconteurs performing ‘Steady As She Goes and ‘Salute Your Solution’, before White and Lynn duett for her tracks ‘Portland, Oregon’ and ‘Whispering Sea’. Loretta Lynn had earlier opened the show alongside William Tyler, both of whom have provided turns as opening acts throughout White’s ‘Lazaretto’ tour.
White’s performance alongside Brendan Benson and Jack Lawrence as The Raconteurs (drummer Patrick Keeler was absent, with Daru Jones filling in) also marks their first in over three years.
