Virginia's LOCKN’ Festival is famous for putting together one-of-a-kind collaborations. In 2019, that included Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio joining the Tedeschi Trucks Band to perform Derek and the Dominos’ only studio album – 1970’s Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs – in its entirety. 

Frequent TTB collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, who has played with Eric Clapton off and on for 20 years, also joined the band. The performance ended up being so strong that Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi decided to release it as an album, Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN'), which concludes with an acoustic studio version of Thorn Tree in the Garden, performed as a duet by Tedeschi and Trucks. It was the only song they didn’t perform on stage.
