Willie is arguably the greatest country music artist of all time, and Shania’s career speaks for itself. She has produced some of the best selling albums of all time, in any genre.
Back in 2003, a ton of great artists came together to honor Willie for his 70th birthday (yeah, Willie was turning 70 all the way back in 2003). The lineup included folks like Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson, Kenny Chesney, Eric Clapton, Toby Keith & more. And of course, the queen of ’90s country… Shania Twain.
Taking the stage together, Willie and Shania delivered a beautiful cover of “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain,” an old Fred Rose tune that was recorded by Roy Acuff, Hank Williams, and then Willie Nelson for his 1975 Stardust album. They followed that up with a gorgeous duet of Shania’s “Forever And For Always.”
