Remember When Chris Stapleton Covered Tom Petty at the Ryman?

AnnaKim Violette Petty began sharing throwback photos showing her with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer on Monday, hours before the rocker's longtime manager confirmed he had died later that evening.

Fans worldwide are in mourning, after the announcement that rock icon Tom Petty died last night, of a heart attack in his home in California. By the mid-80s, Petty joined the league of big stars of rock n roll, touring and collaborating with the likes of Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead.

During a concert at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles in 2008, Mayer covered a gorgeous, harmony-filled acoustic version of Petty's iconic "Free Fallin'", later releasing an official music video of his live version of the classic.

Each of us knows at least one Tom Petty tune (either with Mudcrutch, the Heartbreakers or without), which speaks to this legend's universality.

Petty's influence crossed genres, making him the ultimate musical utility player. You brought us so much joy, @tompetty.

Jones will be limited in practice this week, but will "likely get a good bit of work" as the team goes through the week. However, Trump's tweets did nothing to diminish the demonstrations Sunday , with almost every team taking part.

At the time, the last of three Hollywood Bowl shows felt appropriately emotional as the graceful culmination of the band's career milestone. In the country genre, Chris Stapleton often credits Petty's 1994 album Wildflowers as one that has significantly impacted his songwriting. Before Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, he performed with his first band, the Sundowners, around the area. "I'm sure going to miss you Tom". He was great performer, full of the light, a friend, and Ill never forget him. I remember the mix tape my brother made for his morning drives to high school, one or two Petty songs included.

"It was fascinating to watch the man I idolized conduct the band as he did", Jordan recalled Tuesday after learning of Petty's sudden death at the age of 66.

"He did what so few can do-he kept the pace for over 40 years and as a great as the songs from the early albums were he actually continued to get better and better", Haynes said. And it's - am I getting a little too esoteric? "Without YOU there'd be no USA!"

Courtney Love, Talib Kweli, Kid Rock, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Stanley and Lin-Manuel Miranda were among scores of fans posting remembrances on Twitter, where Petty was the top worldwide trending topic Monday afternoon. "I think in America, for a long time, you had groups that wanted to be stars more than they wanted to make music".
