Trisha Yearwood & Kris Kristofferson Perform Historical ‘Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down’

Trisha Yearwood & Kris Kristofferson Perform Historical ‘Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down’ | Country Music Videos



At a Johnny Cash Tribute show in New York back in 1999, Trisha Yearwood joined Kris Kristofferson for a timeless performance of Kristofferson’s classic “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down.”

Both dressed head to toe in black in honor of  Johnny Cash, they performed the song as a duet beautifully. The Georgia native took the lead, showcasing her strong country vocals with her signature southern twang while Kristofferson hung back on guitar jumping in to harmonize with Yearwood during the chorus.

“Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” was written by Kristofferson and initially popularized by Ray Stevens in 1969 before becoming a No.1 hit for Johnny Cash the following year. Cash’s version of the song penned by Kristofferson received a CMA for “Song of the Year” in 1970 and a version was also featured on Lynn Anderson’s Rose Garden album that same year. 

In a 2013 interview Kristofferson revealed the song “opened up a whole a lot doors for me. So many people that I admired, admired it. Actually, it was the song that allowed me to quit working for a living.”
