Brandi Carlile at the Ryman Auditorium (A Gallery)
For the second evening of her six-night residency at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, Brandi Carlile served up a slew of covers, cuts from her standout LP By The Way, I Forgive You and even invited a very special guest onstage.
The Highwoman’s single set included opener “Hold Out Your Hand,” a rousing version of “Raise Hell,” a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You” and a sit-in by country legend Tanya Tucker who performed her new original “Bring My Flowers Now.”
Carlile’s encore included a cover of Roy Orbison’s “You Got It” and Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse Of The Heart.”
