Wow…I can’t believe we are here! This is my final song before legalization!!! So of course, I had to go with a cover…and why not one from Willie?! This is a cover by Willie from his album “The Great Divide”, and the original track is by the one and only Kenny Rogers! The Great Divide is an album released in 2002 by American country music singer Willie Nelson. It contains several duets and musical collaborations with artists such as Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Lee Ann Womack, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, Brian McKnight, and Bonnie Raitt. The album produced two chart singles in “Mendocino County Line” and “Maria (Shut Up and Kiss Me)”, which respectively reached #22 and #41 on the Hot Country Songs charts. Also included is a cover of “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”, previously a hit for Kenny Rogers and the First Edition. The songs “Mendocino County Line,” “Last Stand in Open Country,” and “This Face” were co-written by Bernie Taupin, the lyricist best known for his collaborations with Elton John.
So sit back, enjoy the sounds and smells of legalization, practice one love, and KEEP IT WEIRD!
