Willie and Waylon just sound good together. Two legends, right? 

When Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings took the stage for this 1987 performance in Nashville, fans couldn't get enough. Considered to be apart of the outlaw country movement, both artists are legends in their own right. 

"Good Hearted Woman" was said to be inspired by an article Jennings read about Ike and Tina Turner. Later that night he met up with Nelson for a game of poker in Fort Worth, Texas where he told him the concept. After the game, the two jammed out their ideas while Nelson's wife Connie penned the lyrics. How's that for a writing session? 

The hit was responsible for elevating Nelson and Jennings into the upper echelons of the outlaw country movement. There weren't many who didn't love the song! In addition, the duo received Platinum recognition for their album of the same name. In 1976 "Good Hearted Woman" became the first of three #1 hit songs from the album.

The song has always been a hit, and still is. This performance, however, is even better! Nelson walks onto the stage almost mid perfomance, surprising the excited crowd. What a show!
