A Washington State native recently toured with Jamie Cullum, during which they performed Rocket Man together in several venues.
Then again, Brandi Carlile has wanted to be like the Rocket Man early on.
She taught herself to play piano, and has called Tumbleweed Connection the album in her collection which is ''absolutely essential.''
She now does Sixty Years On in concert, and is opening for Train.
These tour dates include The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri on April 7; Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on April 8, and the Orpheum in Madison, Wisconsin on the tenth.
