Duane Eddy, Del McCoury, Jerry Douglas & Others Perform With Dan Auerbach In Nashville
Last week Dan Auerbach held a private performance at the Station Inn in Nashville in celebration of his new solo album Waiting On A Song, which came out on Friday. The Black Keys frontman has shared an official video highlight from the show featuring legendary guitarist Duane Eddy.
A current Nashville resident, Auerbach called Waiting On A Song his “love letter” to Music City and he enlisted fellow locals including Eddy, Jerry Douglas, The Memphis Boys’ Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman, and others to help write and record the LP’s 10 songs. According to Nashville Scene, the Station Inn show on May 31 featured Wood on keys, Chrisman on drums, Russ Pahl on guitar, Dave Roe on bass, backing vocalists Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson, and others including a string section. Along with Eddy, Auerbach also brought Douglas to the stage, and on the heels of a recent DelFest collaboration, bluegrass legend Del McCoury and his son Ronnie McCoury also appeared.
