VIDEO: Willie Nelson and George Strait Performed Together for the First Time on Saturday

This might make your jaw drop.  WILLIE NELSON and GEORGE STRAIT had never performed together . . . until Saturday.  They finally did it at the “Willie:  Life & Songs of an American Outlaw” tribute show in Nashville. To make up for lost time, they did a brand new song called “Sing One With Willie”.  They co-wrote it with a couple of songwriters and it’ll be on George’s upcoming album, “Honky Tonk Time Machine”.
The concert was packed with guest stars . . . including Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Emmylou Harris, Jimmy Buffett, Jamey Johnson, Margo Price, Alison Krauss, and Vince Gill.  It’ll air on A&E sometime later this year. Also, in honor of the event, The Boot did a great timeline of Willie’s career.  They went all the way back to 1957 when he released a song called “No Place for Me”.
