The late Tom Petty would have celebrated his 70th birthday last week. Nashville-based musician Dylan Sevey decided to mark the occasion by inviting a few friends to share some of their favorite Petty songs. I guess things got a little carried away – just look at the list of participating artists below, more than 100 in all!
All the better, all proceeds from the show go directly to seven worthy causes.
To get you in the mood, here are some Petty classics performed by Larkin Poe, Drew Holcomb, Lukas Nelson, Adalita, J. Mascis, and a closing take on “Refugee” by Patty Griffin, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews, and Brandi Carlile.
