Last night, Jack White played a big show at Bridgestone Arena, in his adapted hometown of Nashville, and he brought some surprises. During the encore, he reunited with the Raconteurs, his band with Brendan Benson, and they played the Raconteurs songs “Salute Your Solution” and “Steady As She Goes.” He also brought out the country legend Loretta Lynn, an old friend. White produced Lynn’s 2004 album Van Lear Rose, and the two duetted on the Van Lear Rose single “Portland, Oregon,” a well as “Whispering Sea,” a B-side that Lynn wrote in 1955 and hadn’t sung live in years. Below, watch some fan-made video from the show.
White will play New York’s Madison Square Garden with Run The Jewels tomorrow night, and you can’t help but wonder if he has something similar planned for that show.
