Willie Nelson and Melonie Cannon


by Craig Shelburne

Willie Nelson is probably country music’s most famous duet partner, singing with everybody — and we do mean everybody – from Ray Charles to Waylon Jennings to Toby Keith.   To take a line from “What Would Willie Do,” he even had a hit country song with Julio Iglesias.   One of my personal favorites, though, is “Back to Earth,” with the sublime bluegrass singer Melonie Cannon. The video was filmed in Nelson’s own town of Luck, Texas. I still need to catch up on his new albums (Willie and the Wheel and Naked Willie, but this is a cool way to wet my whistle.
