The country icons sang together for the first time ever on January 12th during the Willie: Life and Songs of An American Outlaw concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. A series of iconic pictures of the event were taken and posted via George’s Instagram. “George performed with @willienelsonofficial for the first time EVER at last night’s celebration, Willie: Life & Songs of an American Outlaw. Walking off stage, George said, “that smile wasn’t leaving my face.” Nor ours George!”

“Sing One With Willie” Lyrics

Well, I’ve had a wonderful career
But I think it’s quite queer
So I’m writin’ this down in a song
I just couldn’t resist
‘Cause it’s a nice little twist
And I think you’ll agree this is just wrong

I ain’t never got to sing one with Willie
And I’ve held it inside long enough
Now I ain’t too proud, I’m gonna shout it out loud
I ain’t never got to sing one with Willie

Now I’ve heard him with Merle, Waylon, and Cash
Jones and Toby, that man is totally gracious
But I’m thinking “Damn, why not me?”
We could even sing it on TV
Just like him and old Julio Iglesias

I ain’t never got to sing one with Willie
And I’ve held it inside long enough
Now I ain’t too proud, I’m gonna shout it out loud
I ain’t never got to sing one with Willie

We’ve traveled back and forth
Up and down all the highways
Wherever our big buses can go
But I think that it’s great
To finally sing one with Strait
And our friends will all love it, I know
(But I’m lovin’ it, too, Willie)

I finally get to sing one with Strait
Well, I think that it’s been long enough
I’m mighty proud, just listen to the crowd
I finally got to sing one with George Strait

Look at me now, I’m singing with Willie
Thank you, man, you just made my career
Well, you shoulda said somethin’, Strait
I always thought we would sound great
And I finally got to sing one with ol’ George

Yeah, I am really proud
So I’m shoutin’ it out loud
I finally got to sing one
With ol’ George
With ol’ Willie
