Cover Alert | Grace Potter & Rayland Baxter – Rocket Man

This past weekend Grace Potter & The Nocturnals hosted their annual Grand Point North Music Festival in Burlington’s Waterfront Park. The Nocs were joined on the bill by Trampled By Turtles, Lake Street Dive, Dr. John, The War On Drugs and many other acts. Grace and her band’s set on Friday night featured a stirring rendition of “Rocket Man” by Elton John with special guest Rayland Baxter.

The Nashville native Baxter donned a blanket as a robe for his duet with Potter as they traded off verses. Watch fan-shot footage of the cover thanks to nnmvt:
