Paying homage to one of the biggest classic country songs to ever hit the radio waves, this iconic singer/songwriter pours every bit of his soul into this killer performance of “Seven Spanish Angels” in a nod to Willie Nelson and Ray Charles.
Stepping out on stage during a 2009 concert in Gainesville, Florida, Canadian-born music legend, Bryan Adams delivers a powerhouse performance of this country mega-hit that has soared across music charts worldwide and stolen the hearts of folks everywhere.
Originally recorded as a duet with Willie Nelson and Ray Charles, 1984’s timeless hit, “Seven Spanish Angels” was first released as the lead single from Nelson’s album, Half Nelson, and quickly became a major success – marking Ray Charles’ most successful hit on the country charts.
The track tells the story of a Mexican outlaw and his beloved wife who seek to escape capture by lawmen wanting to return them to Texas. It ends in a gunfight that claims both their lives and the ‘Seven Spanish Angels’ gather in heaven and pray for the souls of the two.
In this unforgettable performance, Adams – who is known for his own seemingly-endless string of hits like “Summer of ’69”, gives his own sound to the track and it’s something you need to see to believe!
