Willie Nelson and Kacey Musgraves performed “Rainbow Connection” on Wednesday night at the annual Country Music Association Awards, often referred to as the CMA Awards. The duet performance of The Muppets‘ classic was part of the annual awards ceremony held at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
Wow! @KaceyMusgraves and @WillieNelson sure found the Rainbow Connection tonight on the #CMAawards. Next time, I’d love to join in to make this a three-part harmony. I can bring my own banjo… and I already know the words.
