Jennifer Nettles and the CMT Next Women of Country Tour came to the Palace Theatre in Albany Friday, and Jennifer sang 'Purple Rain' in his honor.

Over the last few days, all kinds of great tributes to Prince have been happening. Once the purple lights came down on Friday at the Palace Theater, I had a feeling this was coming:

Wow. Such a great, stripped down version of 'Purple Rain' by Jennifer and her band. I have seen all kinds of great performances  by various artists in honor of the music legend, and Jennifer's ranks as one of the best. She can honestly sing anything, and her and the band did a great interpretation here that would have made The Purple One proud.

Marissa, our midday host on 107.7 GNA, actually spoke with Jennifer on the air Friday and asked her about Prince's passing. You can here that interview here.

RIP Prince.
