Jack White played in his adopted hometown of Nashville on Wednesday night (January 28th), with special guests Loretta Lynn and the Raconteurs taking the stage to perform two of Lynn's songs, while the Raconteurs also played a pair of their own tracks.
According to Spin, the Raconteurs performed two tracks: "Salute Your Solution" from 2008's Consolers Of The Lonely and "Steady As She Goes" from 2006's Broken Boy Soldiers. Then Lynn, White and the Raconteurs all performed Lynn's "Portland, Oregon" and the second song she ever wrote, "Whispering Sea."
- White, singer/guitarist Brendan Benson, bassist "Little" Jack Lawrence and drummer Patrick Keeler formed the Raconteurs in 2006. It was White's first project outside the White Stripes.
- The band has been mostly dormant since 2008, although they played a handful of shows in 2011 and issued a live album/DVD in 2013.
- Although a third studio album from the band seems unlikely at this point, Lawrence explained what makes the group so special: "I think the talent of the group that is together is just -- it's hard to beat, you know. Two great songwriters coming together and a lot of bands, you know, don't have that. Jack and Brendan, you know, that's a pretty special thing to be able to work with." at New York's Madison Square Garden.
