Tanya Tucker, Mavis Staples, Amanda Shires & Lukas Nelson Join Brandi Carlile At The Mann

Brandi Carlile was joined onstage Friday night by Mavis Staples, Tanya Tucker, Amanda Shires and Lukas Nelson. The guest-filled concert took place at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia.

Carlile and Staples reprised their recent collaboration by performing “Friendship.” Nelson was on guitar for the song written by Mavis’ father Pops Staples. Shires added fiddle to “The Joke,” ahead of Tucker emerging near the end of Carlile’s main set. Carlile co-produced and co-wrote most of the songs on Tucker’s recently issued album, While I’m Livin’. Last night’s collaboration, which included Nelson on guitar and Shires on fiddle, was a performance of “Delta Dawn,” the song Tucker had a hit in 1972 with when she was only 13-years-old. Shires remained for the set-closing “Pride And Joy.”

The encore at The Mann began with “Redesigning Women,” one of the singles from the debut self-titled album by The Highwomen — the supergroup featuring Carlile, Shires, Maren Morris and Natalie Hemby. Shires then joined Carlile, along with Nelson and cardboard cutouts of Morris and Hemby, for a rendition of The Highwomen’s “If Ever She Leaves Me,” which was written for Carlile by Shires’ husband Jason Isbell who also contributed to the album that came out Friday. The night ended with Carlile delivering “Party Of One.” The guest-filled affair also included Queer Eye cast member Tan France in attendance.
