President Obama and Willie Nelson Sing ‘On the Road Again’ [WATCH]
Willie Nelson's Grammy-winning hit 'On the Road Again' recently got some extra help from none other than President Barack Obama.
The video comes from 'A Salute to the Troops: In Performance at the White House,' a PBS special that aired in advance of Veterans Day. Among the performers for the event were Nelson, Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty and hip-hop queen Mary J. Blige, just to name a few. The concert took place in a large tent on the South Lawn of the White House, and hundreds of troops, veterans and their families were present for the celebratory evening.
"We’ve got a little bit of rock 'n' roll, we’ve got a little bit of country, a little bit of everything in between," President Obama said at the event (quote via HeraldNet). "And that’s good, because here in America, no matter where you are from, no matter what music you listen to, we’re all united out of respect and admiration for the brave men and women who wear our country’s uniform."
The country legend opened the show with 'We Don't Run,' and at the end of the night, he climbed back onstage to perform 'On the Road Again' -- but not before leaning over and relayed a message to the president.
"Willie says I'm gonna have to sing with him, so I'll try it out," Obama announced as the music began.
