Willie Nelson, George Strait perform duet in Nashville
Hart’s ‘Upside’ takes down ‘Aquaman’ with $19.6M debut
Kevin Hart isn’t hosting the Oscars, but he’s got a No. 1 movie. Hart’s “The Upside” surpassed expectations to open with $19.6 million in ticket sales according to studio estimates Sunday.
The strong performance of “The Upside” pushed “Aquaman” to second after the aquatic superhero’s three-week reign on top of the North American box office.
Over the weekend, “Aquaman” passed $1 billion worldwide.
Opening in third place was the canine adventure “A Dog’s Way Home” with $11.3 million.
Early January is often a dumping ground in movie theaters and the weekend featured a number of duds.
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 during a tribute show honoring the 85year-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.
