Willie, Rosanne Revive The Kristofferson Penned Classic
Willie Nelson‘s latest album, ‘To All The Girls’, features the American Music legend singing duets with many of the ladies he’s worked with and respected through the over 50 years he been in the business. Legendary artist’s in their own right, Willie sings with people like Loretta Lynn, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow, Alison Krause, Norah Jones and more.
A cut from this great album is being featured on KXRB and KXRB.com, Willie’s duet with the great Rosanne Cash heard above, ‘Please Don’t Tell Me How The Story Ends’.

As mentioned, Kris Kristofferson wrote this great hit (along with country standard’s like ‘Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down’, ‘Help Me Make It Through The Night’, ‘For The Good Times’ and many more’).
Kris included his version of the song on his ‘Austin Sessions’, an album he recorded several years ago, re-recording some of the greatest songs he’s written. Listen to Kris’ version below.
All in all, I guess this is proof that a great song never dies….it never even fades away.
