Jack White performed in honor of Loretta Lynn at a tribute concert to the late country icon Sunday in Nashville.

The White Stripes/The Raconteurs/The Dead Weather rocker took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry House to play Lynn’s “Van Lear Rose,” the title track off her Grammy-winning 2004 album, which White produced.

You can watch official footage of White’s performance streaming now on YouTube.

Lynn died October 4 at age 90. Following the news of her passing, White shared a video statement calling Lynn a “brilliant genius” and “the greatest female singer-songwriter of the 20th century,” adding that she was “like a mother figure” to him.

The tribute concert will air on CMT Wednesday, November 2, and Sunday, November 6, and is set to stream on Paramount+ in 2023.
