Fans can now relive Willie Nelson‘s live performance of his beloved country anthem “On The Road Again” thanks to a new animated video shared on Friday. The performance was recorded during Nelson’s headlining set at the 2016 Austin City Limits Music Festival, and for a brief second, almost makes listeners feel like we’re back on the road on the way to the next show in a post-COVID-19 world.
The performance opened with a lively introduction from Texas native Matthew McConaughey. From there, Nelson and his backing band charge through the song which has become a fan-favorite sing-a-long whenever it’s played.

Nelson will be one of the featured performers who will take part in the Whole Lotta Celebratin’ Goin’ On virtual event celebrating Jerry Lee Lewis‘ 85th birthday on October 29th, alongside Elton John, Joe Walsh, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Jones, and more. Nelson also recently appeared on Dolly Parton‘s new Christmas album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, released earlier this month.
