The Tedeschi Trucks Band jammed with Blackberry Smoke‘s Charlie Starr at the first three 2019 Wheels Of Soul tour stops. Starr performed on the debut of TTB’s version of a Leon Russell cover and the group also unveiled versions of tunes by Elton John and Bill Withers over the course of the weekend in Florida. This year’s installment of the traveling festival also features Shovels & Rope.

On Friday, the TTB, BBS and Shovels & Rope kicked off the tour in the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s hometown of Jacksonville. The Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks-led 12-piece presented their first ever cover of Elton John’s “Border Song” at Jacksonville’s Daily’s Place Amphitheater. Later in the night, Starr emerged to assist the TTB on their debut rendition of Russell’s “Stranger In A Strange Land.” Charlie and the Tedeschi Trucks Band repeated the collaboration on Saturday at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton.

Charlie Starr also lent the headliners a hand on Sunday night at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg. This time, Starr added to the group’s take on the blues classic “Key To The Highway.” The Tedeschi Trucks Band also included the 12-piece’s debut cover of “I Wish You Well” by Bill Withers in their set. The Wheels Of Soul tour continues on Wednesday in Orange Beach, Alabama.
