When a performer as talented as Vince Gill decides to cover a classic song, you know his accompanying band is going to be just as talented.

That's exactly what happened at the 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival. Vince, along with Sherly Crow, Keb' Mo, and others, honored Eric Clapton with their rendition of Lay Down Sally

The Crossroads festival, founded by Eric Clapton in 1999, benefits a drug treatment center he started in Antigua, aptly named the Crossroads Centre. Each performer is personally selected by Clapton himself to perform, so you can imagine what an honor it must be to play at this festival, which is held every few years in Madison Square Gardens.

Throughout the years the list of iconic artists has included the likes of Bob Dylan, Bo Diddley, Booker T. & the M.G.'s, Mary J. Blige, and of course, all the talented musicians that appear in this amazing video below.

The tune Lay Down Sally was a huge hit for Clapton, and as you'll see in this video, Vince and his megastar lineup do an outstanding rendition!

Lay Down Sally (by Eric Clapton)

There is nothing that is wrong
In wanting you to stay here with me.
I know you've got somewhere to go,
But won't you make yourself at home and stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.

Lay down, Sally, and rest you in my arms.
Don't you think you want someone to talk to?
Lay down, Sally, no need to leave so soon.
I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.

The sun ain't nearly on the rise
And we still got the moon and stars above.
Underneath the velvet skies,
Love is all that matters. Won't you stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.

I long to see the morning light
Coloring your face so dreamily.
So don't you go and say goodbye,
You can lay your worries down and stay with me.
And don't you ever leave.
