It seems that almost every country artist you could imagine has collaborated with Willie Nelson at some point in their career. Nelson has been able to record and perform with some of the biggest names in the business, including fellow outlaw Waylon Jennings.
The two worked together on multiple projects, one of the most notable being their 1975 duet "Good Hearted Woman." They wrote the song six years prior at a motel in Fort Worth, Texas, and Jennings first released it in 1971 as a solo.
That little song that two friends wrote in a motel room went on to become one of country music's most recognizable hits. "Good Hearted Woman" reached the third spot on the Hot Country Songs chart when Jennings released his solo recording. The duet between Jennings and Nelson eclipsed its success, and made it all the way to the top spot on the Hot Country Singles chart.
Jennings and Nelson also collaborated in the country supergroup The Highwaymen, which completed its membership with Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson. Nelson has worked with Kristofferson outside of the group as well, and once sang a show-stopping rendition of "Good Hearted Woman" with him by his side.
An undated clip surfaced that shows Nelson and Kristofferson singing "Good Hearted Woman" together. The two powered through the song with an abundance of energy, delivering a performance that is sure to get your boots stomping!
But that wasn't all that Nelson had in store. After his duet with Kristofferson, he welcomed some other superstars on stage to join him in Bob Wills' country classic "New San Antonio Rose." Those who came to sing along with Nelson were none other than Tanya Tucker, Ray Benson, and The Gatlin Brothers.
The country stars' enthusiastic vocals drove the song to the end, which prompted the crowd to react with a warm round of applause. You're sure to applaud this performance as well once you check it out in the video below.
When this many legends come together on one stage, it's a guaranteed recipe for great entertainment!
