A stand out performance was the legendary musician's duet with Twain, who has sold over 100 million records, making her the best-selling female artist in country music history.

The two sang “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain." The song was from Nelson's 1975 album, "Red Headed Stranger," which helped jump-start his career as a singer.

For their iconic duet, Twain was dressed in a Willie Nelson t-shirt. She completed her look wearing a pair of jeans and a grey cap.

Nelson's birthday bash was broadcasted to fans across the world. The track, “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain," was penned by Fred Rose in the forties and had also been performed by other veteran musicians, including Elvis Presley and Roy Acuff.

Nelson worked as a songwriter before he shot to fame. Some of his successes as a songwriter was "Crazy," performed by Patsy Cline. He also wrote "Pretty Paper" for Roy Orbison and "Funny How Time Slips Away" for Billy Walker.

He produced his first record, "No Place For Me," in the late fifties but didn't receive positive reviews for it. Instead, he plied his craft as a radio announcer and club singer.

He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame when he turned 60. In 2013, Nelson celebrated his 80th birthday in style once more, and the prestigious event was held at Third Man Records in Nashville.
