We had a request to do it last night.
In the key of D, modulates to E
Right before it modulates:
I played D F#m G F#m B.....E
The guys I was playing with played
D F#m G F#m A......E
How do you play it?

You are 100% correct. It's the only way to play it. (Assuming you did play the awesome fills right after that, note-for-note from the album, right?)

Russ, we played it last night the way you do... I think the bass player whiffed one part, but the steel player and I play it pretty close to the record...
do you double the fiddle part on the melody? (that is what I do) it has a nice spatial quality.....

I play it the way you play it.

I always played it D A B E on the modulation, but that doesn't mean it was right.

The B or B7 chord before you get to E is called a pivot chord. It is the V of the new key and sets up the modulation. It is very common.
Yep, you got it right, Russ.
