Listen: JD Souther & Nellie McKay Cover Cole Porter on NPR's Mountain Stage


As Don Henley’s long-time writing partner, JD Souther has had his hands in some of the most memorable pop songs of all time,  including “The New Kid in Town” and “Best of My Love.” But here, Souther teams up with Mountain Stage favorite Nellie McKay to cover another legendary songwriter: Cole Porter’s standard “Every Time We Say Goodbye.”

This week’s broadcast also features performances from Grammy-nominated Nashville singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters, up-and-coming roots rockers Whiskey Gentry, and world-renowned (and  Virginia-based) finger-picking guitar maker Wayne Henderson.
