Notice the guy impersonating Willie and tell me that he isn't dead on. Until you see a close-up, you'd think it was him. All of them do a pretty good job.

Neat - you're right, though. "Willie" needs to be a bit thinner and more weathered; "Waylon" is the closest; KK needs more blonde/grey - he's too brunet; "Johnny"'s voice is close but needs a little more gravel. They're close enough to make you miss the real thing.

This is mainly directed towards Charlene,

I don't know if you've explored youtube or not, but there is a great KK video of him appearing on the Johnny Cash show performing "Pilgrim : Chapter 33" with Cash.

If this is old news to you, simply disregard.

That's one of his best songs.
This performance would be hard to top though.

AFter every one I think the same thing!

Kris got emotional about making a friend of Johnny Cash...he still does that..

I fumbled thru my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt......
wow....

and another fave of mine - Dean Martin....in this clip I think Rita was preggers with Casey in 1974.

I love the way the interview notes ended, with KK's
statement :

"Itís nice when it all comes together."

Amen.

Okay, try this one. Nothing tops this performance. Sit back, grab a beverage and enjoy.
