Wil­lie Nel­son, Ge­orge Strait per­form to­gether

Centre Daily Times - - Stay Connected -

Coun­try icon Wil­lie Nel­son has sung with just about every­one, from Snoop Dogg to Frank Si­na­tra, but one sur­pris­ing omis­sion was fel­low Texas troubadour Ge­orge Strait.

The two coun­try singers sang their first ever duet to­gether on Satur­day night in Nashville, Ten­nessee, dur­ing a tribute show honor­ing the 85-year-old out­law coun­try singer with a per­for­mance of a song writ­ten just for the oc­ca­sion.

The two sang a song called, “Sing One With Wil­lie,” in which Strait says to Nel­son, “You just made my ca­reer” and Nel­son replies, “Or ru­ined it.”

More than two dozen artists sang in honor of Nel­son dur­ing the show, in­clud­ing Kris Kristof­fer­son, Jimmy Buf­fett, Ali­son Krauss and more. The show will be aired on A&E at a later date.
