Dylan Fest 2017: 10 Best Things We Saw

From John Paul White to Wynonna, the highlights of Bob Dylan's 76th birthday tribute concert in Nashville


There were some big personalities in the room at Dylan Fest, but none were as noticeable as Wynonna's. Showing up barefoot, Wynonna brought along her own players, the Big Noise, to step in for the house band, the Cabin Down Below Band (who did a stellar job adapting to the night’s many changes of direction). Wynonna turned "Lonesome Day Blues" into a rousing show tune, but the real highlight was her chilling rendition of the Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid opus "Billy #4," which became a slow death march that even saw her playing a harmonica solo. Twice, just to get it right – because, you know, she's Wynonna.
