You Should See Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, And Friends Singing “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line”

You Should See Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, And Friends Singing “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line"
by

The moment country legends Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings took the stage for an epic performance of “Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line,” you know you’re about to have a blast! 

Back in 1993, country legend Willie Nelson threw a significantly massive party for himself at his home in Texas for his 60th birthday, inviting a few of his closest friends to help him celebrate.

And as expected, Nelson didn’t stay seated – he often wound up onstage, singing together with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan, Travis Tritt, Ray Charles, among others on some of the songs that had sustained his career.

Willie Nelson’s Performance With Waylon Jennings Is One of The Night’s Many Highlights 

But out of the many incredible performances of the special night, one of the highlights was the lively performance of Waylon Jennings‘ “Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line.” Willie Nelson kicked off the country ballad, and Jennings, Kristofferson, Tritt, and Marty Stuart eventually joined in. 

As the song went on – with each of the country legends contributing on the guitar and vocals – the energy continued building up and turned into a rowdy jam.

“Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line” was one of Waylon Jennings songs written by country music guitarist Jimmy Bryant. It was released in 1968 as the second single off Jennings’ album, Only the Greatest. The classic country ballad then reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, holding that spot for five weeks and spending a total of eighteen remarkable weeks. In 1969, Linda Ronstadt recorded a gender-reversed version, which became a staple of her setlists at her concerts.

Anyway, the birthday tribute entitled Willie Nelson: The Big Six-O was broadcasted nearly thirty years ago. Tune in below and watch Nelson, Jennings, and more rocking out together “Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line.”
