Eric Church Welcomes Warren Haynes On ‘The Weight’


Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, North Carolina hosted the inaugural American Roots Music & Arts Festival on Saturday and Sunday. The diverse lineup ranged from Greensky Bluegrass to Modest Mouse to Willie Nelson to Leftover Salmon to Sheryl Crow. Country mega-star Eric Church headlined the action on both nights and helped curate the lineup. Warren Haynes was on hand with the Ashes & Dust Band and wound up sitting in with Church on Sunday night.

Haynes’ Sunday at American Roots came just days after he was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall Of Fame. Church brought out Warren for a stirring rendition of “The Weight” by The Band, a song the guitarist has played with a variety of projects over the years including The Allman Brothers Band. Vocalist Joanna Cotten also contributed to The Band cover. Watch Warren Haynes sit-in with Eric Church on “The Weight” on Sunday night as captured by Taylor Hendrix:
