Jennifer Nettles Shines During ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Performance [WATCH]
Press play on the video above to watch Nettles’ performance. The singer earned cheers from the crowd as soon as the song’s familiar melody began playing, and throughout the tune, she made the decidedly intricate track look like an easy performance, hitting the entire thing word for word, note for note.
The even more astounding part is, according to Rolling Stone Country, Nettles, her band and her backing vocalists hadn’t played “Bohemian Rhapsody” live in concert until Saturday. Hopefully, however, she’ll keep it in the setlist; they proved that they can do the quadruple-platinum song justice.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” was written by Freddie Mercury for Queen’s 1975 studio album A Night at the Opera. It has gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time; in fact, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was the first song to hit No. 1 in the UK twice with the same version.
Nettles is currently headlining the Next Women of Country Tour, which also features Brandy Clark, Lindsay Ell and Tara Thompson. The trek is scheduled to run through April 22. For more of Nettles’ upcoming tour dates, visit JenniferNettles.com.
