Watch Nina Nastasia cover Dolly Parton at End of the Road festival

11 April 2024, 15:00 | Written by The Line of Best Fit

Before her set at End of the Road Festival last year, legendary LA-born singer and songwriter Nina Nastasia played a Best Fit secret session with a cover of Dolly Parton's iconic early 90s track "Eagle When She Flies"

The song – originally written by Parton as the theme for Steel Magnolias – was brought to life during an afternoon set by Nastasia, fresh from the release of Riderless Horse, her first new album in 12 years.

Nastasia joined the likes of Samia, Angel Olsen, Future Islands, Caitlin Rose and The Anchoress who all played for Best Fit's Secret Sessions during last year's event. The sessions have become a key part of End of the Road each year, bringing together artists from across the line-up in a series of short sets, exclusive covers, collaborations, and live interviews and Q&As.
