It would be fair to call The Highwaymen country music’s first supergroup, but it would also be something of a misnomer. After all, “super” doesn’t even begin to describe the combined talents of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson. … That magic is now set to return thanks to Columbia/Legacy, who will be releasing The Highwaymen Live – American Outlaws on May 20th. The deluxe box set includes three audio discs with tracks recorded live at New York’s Nassau Coliseum and various Farm Aid festivals, plus a DVD or Blu-ray featuring a previously unreleased full-length concert film recorded live at Nassau Coliseum on March 14, 1990.
Visit Consequence of Sound for the video premiere of “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” from that concert footage, featuring Willie Nelson fronting the band for an emotional performance.
