When it came time for Willie Nelson’s second CMT Crossroads appearance, he found it difficult to pick just one artist, telling CMT: “I’ve got a lot of friends,” laughed the 80-year-old Texan with characteristic charm.
So Willie and CMT came up with an all-star list of performers, including Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Norah Jones, Ashley Monroe, Leon Russell and Neil Young, while Jack White (musician and owner of Third Man Records) conducts an interview with the country legend.
Ashley Monroe tells us what is is really like to perform with this unique and legendary artist:
“I think there are many things about Willie that make him special,” she said. “I think his spirit alone, even if he didn’t write songs or anything, I think the spirit of him is very strong, very powerful. And then you put the way he writes songs on top of that and … it’s a spiritual experience to be in his presence. It really is.”
