Ben returned for the third time to eTown for an acoustic performance and interview. It was highlighted with a standout version of "Ashes" featuring Etones' bass player Chris Engleman and host/mandola player Nick Forester. In eTown tradition the broadcast ended with an ensemble finale. They played Blind Willie Johnson's "Nobody's Fault But Mine". Ben started the song on lap slide, not soon after noodling "God Don't Never Change", another Blind Willie Johnson cut.
