Restoration: Re-imagining the Songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin!

Legendary musician, Elton John, is about to embark on his farewell tour after 50 years, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour! To celebrate the career of Elton John, longtime music partner Bernie Taupin put together a group of country stars to create a tribute album titled Restoration! This album features songs from Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton and more singing Elton John songs and can be found in stores now!

Dave and Casey had a chance to talk to Bernie Taupin about this project. Bernie was John’s music partner writing some of the most iconic songs such as Rocket Man, Candle in the Wind, Tiny Dancer, Bennie & The Jets and more! Bernie grew in rural England and claims to be a “British hillbilly” that grew up on country music which is why he worked on this project with country artists. Check out the full interview here!
