They Teamed Up For A Tom Petty Classic
Stevie Nicks joined country musician Keith Urban for a string of songs at Nashville’s New Year’s Eve party. This is Urban’s fourth time headlining the Music City Midnight countdown which was held at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. They performed Tom Petty and Nicks’ 1981 duet “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 “Second Hand News,” and Nicks’ 1982 solo classic “Edge of Seventeen.”
Playing for over 200,000 people in the crowd, it’s a record-breaking attendance compared to 2018’s 175,000. Urban said, “This feels like the beginning of a damn fine year. Stevie Nicks just joined our band.”
Urban also paid tribute to musicians who passed away in 2019 by performing a seven-minute medley – “My Best Friend’s Girl” and “You Might Think” for The Cars’ Ric Ocasek, “I’m A Believer” for The Monkee’s Peter Tork, “Sunshine of Your Love” for Cream’s Ginger Baker, and “It Must Have Been Love” for Roxette’s Marie Fredriksson to name a few.
Urban is actually no stranger to performing Fleetwood Mac classics. He already covered “Second Hand News” in 2018. In 2013, he also joined Little Big Town for their rendition of “The Chain.”
