The Exit/In was jumping on Tuesday night (October 24), when Kendell Marvel took the stage at the iconic Nashville venue. The longtime writing partner of Chris Stapleton recently released his own full length titled Lowdown & Lonesome, and this was the official album release party.
As the crowd packed in for the show, Marvel kicked things off with the entire new album, from top to bottom, often with Rami Jaffee of Foo Fighters sitting in on keys/accordion. After the album was done, Marvel said that the rest of the night was going to be about having fun. And fun we did have.
The Brothers Osborne made their way onto the jam packed stage for three songs. The first two (“Ramblin’ Fever” and “Silver Wings”) were Merle Haggard covers, and can be found below. The third was Willie Nelson‘s classic “Whiskey River.” Jaffee sat in on “Silver Wings.”
When Kendell returned, he was packing heat in the form of special guest. Chris Shiflett of Foo Fighters, and Roger Gorman of Black Crowes, along with the return of Jaffee. The newly formed, one night only, supergroup performed a pair of songs. The first, sans Gorman, was “Think I’ll Just Sit Here and Drink” by Merle Haggard, the favorite cover artist of the night. The second was a blistering “One Way Out” by Allman Brothers.
