While the Innings Festival in Arizona recently, Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder rolled out a solo acoustic performance of ‘Maybe It’s Time’ from the Oscar-winning ‘ A Star is Born’. The song is featured in the acclaimed film with Bradley Cooper’s Jackson Maine. According to AV Club, Vedder was the basis for Cooper’s character in film and even consulted on the script.
Jason Isbell who wrote the song, was overjoyed on Twitter by the nod from Vedder.
Holy shit Eddie Vedder sang my Bradley Cooper song in his set tonight. That is by far the strangest sentence I’ve ever composed but it’s certainly a huge honor. I was 12 when “Ten” came out and by god I learned how to play every song on it.
