One of the awesome things about YouTube is that serves as an archive of live performances. Today’s discussion asks you to find a great live performance from a country artist that others might not have seen.
Here’s all you need to do:
1. Find the YouTube clip
2. Copy the url and paste it into the comments
3. Add a “v” right after http, so “http://www.youtube.com….” becomes “httpv://www.youtube.com…”
When you post the comment, the video will appear. Don’t forget to add a brief comment before or after the video!
I’ll kick things off with a superstar performance of “Highwayman” by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings & Kris Kristofferson. I love the wave of applause that comes after each man starts singing, and how even in a group of superstar legends, Cash’s star power stands out. He gets a longer ovation than any of them and quite a few people stand up once he starts singing, even though he’s been on stage the whole time.
