This April we hosted a very special event here at Third Man Records. We were honored to have the one and only Willie Nelson and some of his talented and lovely friends come to our building and perform a very special concert here for his 80th birthday. The fruits of that show were captured by CMT for their Crossroads program, and that special, Willie Nelson & Friends From Third Man Records, will be airing on the CMT network this Sunday June 23rd at 9pm ET.
In a rare occasion for modern television, all of the audio from the show was captured on our own analog recording equipment and it will be this warmer analog tape sound that will be broadcast on Sunday. So join Third Man, Willie Nelson, Jack White, Neil Young, Leon Russell, Norah Jones, Jamey Johnson, Ashley Monroe, Sheryl Crow and more to celebrate Willie Nelson's 80th birthday here at TMR this Sunday evening.
Until then, here's a clip of Neil Young and Willie Nelson performing "Long May You Run" from the that once in a lifetime evening:
