For an exclusive and very memorable musical night at the Bridgestone Arena, country rock star Willie Nelson joined forces with the enigmatic Kris Kristofferson to woo the crowd in a standing ovation-worthy collaboration.
Combining their distinctive musical backgrounds and styles in country music, the two artists made sure theirs was the highlight of the tribute concert for Kristofferson’s life and legacy in the industry. The tribute concert took place in Nashville during the 16th of March in 2016, and this particular footage was among the most powerful performances of the night.
Nelson and Kristofferson complemented each other’s musicality so well, that for a moment the audience felt as though they merged into a single, insanely gifted and masterful musician. In the video, viewers can also see the great chemistry between the two legendary artists. They both fed off of each other’s energy and it translated well throughout the entire duration of their duet.[like_button]
