Willie Nelson & Family, “I Gotta Get Drunk (and I sure do dread it)” (Golden Casino, Las Vegas) (12/10/13)Wednesday, December 11th, 2013
Neil Young performs “Long May You Run” with Willie Nelson live at the Farm Aid concert in Tinley Park, Illinois on October 4, 1997.
Music lovers (and especially country music lovers) received an early Christmas treat in the form of the new holiday movie Angels Sing, which went into limited release last month and wowed with a fantastic cast including Harry Connick Jr., “Nashville’s” Connie Britton, Lyle Lovett, and not one but two country legends: Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.
Of course, a film containing so many musical powerhouses wouldn’t be complete without the actors providing a great soundtrack; and Kristofferson rises to the occasion here by covering Nelson’s Christmas classic “Pretty Paper” (which was also a hit for Roy Orbison in the ’60s). In this exclusive clip, the film’s cast and Kristofferson himself discuss the song, the feeling and emotion behind it, and what it means to take on Nelson’s moving holiday tune this season.
Angels Sing is a modern-day take on the beloved holiday themes presented in such classics as It’s A Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street: Connick Jr. plays a man who’s lost all joy for Christmas due to a tragic accident suffered years ago. Britton stars as his wife, while Kristofferson is his father. Nelson appears as a mysterious stranger who helps Connick Jr. regain his love for the holidays again.
The soundtrack to the film will be available Dec. 17
Neil Young performs “Heart of Gold” with Willie Nelson at the Farm Aid concert in Louisville, Kentucky on October 1st, 1995. Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers. Dave Matthews joined Farm Aid’s board of directors in 2001.
