Nathaniel Rateliff has teamed up with bluegrass singer Molly Tuttle on a cover of the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty classic, "Stop Dragging My Heart Around". The song - which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year - was the first single from Nicks' debut solo album Bella Donna.
The cover version - appears on …but i’d rather be with you, too, the addendum EP to Tuttle’s 2020 covers LP, …but i’d rather be with you
Tuttle said of the collaboration:
"Nathaniel has been someone whose music helped get me through the struggles of this past year and it was such an honor to sing with him on this song that I love," says Tuttle. "I have always wanted to work up this classic Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty duet with someone and it was a thrill to do it with one of my favorite singers. We recorded our parts remotely but I hope we get to do it in person someday!"
