Metallica invaded Nashville on Jan. 24 to play before a packed house at Bridgestone Arena. As expected, the biggest metal band of all time performed a number of their crowd-favorite hits, including “The Unforgiven,” “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “Fuel,” “One” and more.
Metallica even had something in store for the country fans in the audience—a cover of Loretta Lynn’s 1971 hit, “You’re Lookin’ at Country.”
Metallica’s Kirk Hammett (lead guitar) and Rob Trujillo (bass) were front and center during the performance, while James Hetfield (vocals/guitar) and Lars Ulrich (drums) took a break.
The Tennessean‘s Dave Paulson captured a clip of the performance, which you can watch below.
