Listen to Willie Nelson on iHeartRadio

A musical salute to Willie Nelson airs this weekend.  Neil Young is part of the special "CMT Crossroads" show in honor of the country legend's 80th birthday, and performs his classic "Long May You Run" for Willie. 

The special installment of the CMT series was taped at Jack White's Third Man Records studio in Nashville in April, a couple of weeks before Nelson's birthday. 

Jamey Johnson and Ashley Monroe also share the stage with Willie at the event.  Sheryl Crow, Leon Russell, and Norah Jones perform as well, while White serves as the show's host. 

The "CMT Crossroads" episode "Willie Nelson & Friends From Third Man Records" will debut on CMT Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.
