It has been announced recently that Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson have recorded an album together, “Django and Jimmie” which drops June 2nd and we can’t wait! They recently took us behind the scenes of recording the track “Missing Ol’ Johnny Cash” together.
Merle had the idea for this song and ran it by Willie, who thought it was a great idea! They wanted to put a song together about some things Johnny Cash did, so Merle put lyrics and an arrangement together and started recording!
We find out right away in this clip that Merle and Johnny Cash’s history goes back further than one might think. Merle was actually an inmate at one of Johnny’s prison shows and were friends until Johnny’s death in 2003.
It is so amazing to see how many people and how much time and effort go into putting a single track together.
We can’t wait until their album comes out June 2nd, but check out this behind the scenes video while we wait!
