Willie Nelson, Cheryl Crow, CMT Crossroads (2/7/2007)


Here’s some good news!  CMT is re-broadcasting the Crossroads segment with Willie and Cheryl.  It is so good!  I made a cd of the music; they should release it as a cd, it’s that good.

Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow met first in 1999 when they were part of a New York tribute concert honoring Johnny Cash. Nelson and Crow opened their CMT Crossroads taping with “Jackson,” one of the songs they performed at the Cash tribute. As they did in New York, Nelson played Cash to Crow’s June Carter.      

Their friendship has grown since their first meeting. Crow, raised in a musical household in Missouri, reveres Nelson as the “king of phrasing” and “the voice that was the soundtrack to my childhood.” Nelson regards Crow as a worthy musical colleague, an inheritor of his musical “outlaw” spirit and a fit audience for his dirty jokes.
