Young Shania Twain joins Willie Nelson on stage to perform iconic country song together
Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain, who was 38 years old at the time, took to the stage with Willie Nelson to perform "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" together.
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.
Today, Nelson is recognized by everyone as an American Icon and have throughout his career received numerous awards, including the Kennedy Center Honors in the late nineties.
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.
Nelson produced 67 albums, and his latest album, "Last Man Standing," was released in April 2018 by Legacy Recordings.
The acclaimed singer recently paid tribute to his friend Frank Sinatra with his new video, "One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)." Originally performed by Fred Astaire, the song was written back in 1940's.
