Song: "Duane Allman"
Album: Goodnight Tender

"I was listening to The Allman Brothers when I was a young kid in the 70’s. There was something so defiant yet vulnerable in their songs. It was my first taste of what I would love about southern rock boys," Amy Ray tells Rolling Stone. "I was so young that it didn’t even dawn on me that Duane had died, but when I did realize it, it was my rock and roll coming of age. Susan Tedeschi of Tedeschi Trucks Band graciously agreed to sing some harmonies on ['Duane Allman'], and without a touch of irony, recorded some killer tracks at her and Derek’s studio in Florida. Her voice gave the song the wings it needed."
