Last year, a star-studded cast of country music singers gathered onstage to perform numerous Kris Kristofferson classics. Check out Willie Nelson's performance with his former Highwaymen partner...

In March 2016, Music City played host to a concert titled The Life and Songs of Kris Kristofferson: All Star Concert Celebration. The show was set up to honor Texas native Kris Kristofferson. Reba McEntire, Eric Church, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley and Lady Antebellum were among the artists who paid their tribute to the country outlaw legend by covering his songs. However, the greatest performance of the night came from an old friend of Kristofferson, Wille Nelson. The pair were a part of The Highwaymen supergroup, which also included late country music icons Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. Watch Kris and Willie team up to perform the classic “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” below!

 “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” Lyrics

On a Sunday morning sidewalk I’m wishing Lord that I was stoned
Cause there’s something in a Sunday makes a body feel alone
And there’s nothing sure to dying half as lonesome as the sound
On a sleepy city sidewalk Sunday morning coming down

Well I woke up Sunday morning with no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad so I had one more for desert
Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt
And I shaved my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stair to meet the day
I’d smoke my brain the night before with cigarettes and songs I’d been a picking

But I lit my first and watched the small kid cussin’ at a can that he was kicking
Then I crossed the empty street and caught
The Sunday smell of someone fryin’ chicken
And it took me back to something that I’d lost somewhere somehow along the way
On a Sunday morning sidewalk…

In the park I saw a daddy with the laughing little girl that he was swinging
And I stopped beside a Sunday school and listened to the songs they were singing
Then I headedback for home and somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing
And it echoed through the canyons like the disappearing dreams of yesterday
On a Sunday morning sidewalk…
Coming down coming down coming down coming down

A 90-minute CD/DVD of The Life and Songs of Kris Kristofferson: All Star Concert Celebration will become available on October 27th. More information can be found here.
