Watch Neil & Willie on June 23

Watch Neil Young & Wille Nelson perform a beautiful rendition of “Long May You Run” on CMT Crossroads on June 23.

CMT Crossroads is a series of specials that aims to connect country-music luminaries with friends from across musical divides, but it usually just combines different flavors of cheese.  (The last episode, for instance, paired Rascal Flatts with Journey.)

But the show’s next episode promises to be something special. Willie Nelson taped his Willie Nelson & Friends special at Jack White’s Third Man Records, and he brought a roster of guests that included Jamey Johnson, Sheryl Crow, Leon Russell, Norah Jones, and Ashley Monroe.

And in what must’ve been a show-stopping moment, Nelson’s fellow free-spirited reedy-voiced legend Neil Young joined Nelson onstage to perform an absolutely shattering acoustic version of the 1976 Stills-Young Band classic “Long May You Run,” with no further accompaniment. Watch it below, and try not to let that hug at the end absolutely destroy you.

\"What is it about JJ Cale’s playing? I mean, you could say Eric
Clapton’s the guitar god, but... he can\'t play like JJ,\" Young told
biographer Jimmy McDonough. \"JJ’s the one who played all that s---
first... And he doesn’t play very loud, either — I really like that
about him. He’s so sensitive. Of all the players I ever heard, it’s
gotta be Hendrix and JJ Cale who are the best electric guitar players.
JJ’s my peer, but he doesn’t have the business acumen — he doesn’t have the idea of how to deal with the rest of the world that I do. But
musically, he’s actually more than my peer, because he’s got that thing.
I don’t know what it is.\"
