Personnel: Willie Nelson (vocals, guitar); Ray Charles, Kenny Chesney, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, Norah Jones, Toby Keith, Diana Krall, Lyle Lovett, Shelby Lynne, John Mellencamp, Ray Price, Leon Russell, Paul Simon, Shania Twain, Steven Tyler, ZZ Top (vocals); Biff Watson (acoustic & electric guitars); Brent Mason (electric guitar); Wyclef Jean, Andy York (guitar); Dan Dugmore (steel guitar); Miriam Sturn (violin); Stuart Duncan (fiddle); Mickey Raphael (harmonica); John Hobbsm, Matt Rollings, Robert Aaron (keyboards); Michael Rhodes, Jerry Duplessif (bass); Kenny Aronoff, Donald Guillaume, Dane Clark (drums); Shannon Forrest (percussion); Julia Waters, Maxine Waters, Corky Churke (background vocals).
Recorded live at The Beacon Theatre, New York, New York on April 9, 2003.
For his 70th birthday gala, Willie Nelson decided to celebrate by inviting a cast of musical stars to join him in duets on a televised concert. In keeping with Willie's eclecticism, only a few of the famous participants (Shania Twain,Toby Keith, old pal Ray Price) are country artists. How much is added to Nelson's classic "Crazy" by guests Diana Krall and Elvis Costello (hot celeb couple of the moment) is an open question; what's really important is the well deserved recognition Nelson receives from the musical world's biggest names. If you're a hardcore Willie fan, you've probably already got a couple of earlier live versions of, for example, "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," but part of LIVE AND KICKIN's purpose is to expose fans of Nelson's duet partners to the magic they've been missing out on for many decades.
