WATCH IT HERE! CMT Edge has premiered Eric Clapton and Vince Gill’s “Lay Down Sally” filmed at this year’s Crossroads Guitar Festival and it’s now available on whereseric.com thanks to Rhino and CMT. EC and Vince Gill are joined by Andy Fairweather Low, and member of EC’s 2013 touring band. The song gives the players a chance to shine and when Vince Gill slides in on high harmony, the satisfied smile on EC’s face is contagious. The DVD, Blu-ray and CD of festival highlights is out this week in the UK, US, Canada, France, Japan, Italy and many other countries. Clapton fans in Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Finland, and The Netherlands are already enjoying it as it went on sale in these markets on Friday 15 November.
The festival took place on 12 and 13 April in New York City. Like the previous three Crossroads Festivals, Eric assembled an unparalleled lineup of the world’s most celebrated guitarists and while the previous three festivals were all hosted in sprawling outdoor stadiums, he took the festivities indoors for the first time this year to Madison Square Garden. The 2013 event also featured two different nights of music with performances by EC, the Allman Brothers Band, Blake Mills, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II, Gary Clark Jr., Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Keith Richards, Keith Urban, Los Lobos, Robert Cray, Sonny Landreth, Steve Cropper, Vince Gill, Warren Haynes and many more.
