Waylon and Willie have always been a natural fit. They both helped pioneer the Outlaw Country move00nt in the '70s, with a raw, rootsy approach with enough grit to appeal to rockers and hardcore honky-tonkers. While both men are superstars in their own right, their collaborations have endeared them to an even larger audience, and this compilation focuses on some of that partnership's key moments.
The quirky muse of Kris Kristofferson is tapped for the eccentric state-of-the-world tune "The Year 2003 Minus 25" and "Don't Cuss The Fiddle," and the duo pulls off an admirably understated take on "Dock of the Bay." shine here. Classic beer-swigging jukebox staples like "Good Hearted Woman" and "Mammas Don't Let Your Babys Grow Up To Be Cowboys."
