Last of the Breed

Saturday, August 13, at 8pm on CET
Tuesday, August 16, at 8pm on CET

The treasure trove of honky-tonk hits and Texas swing tunes that turned the album Last of the Breed — by the legendary Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Ray Price — into a major-selling hit airs as a once-in-a-lifetime concert event. Taped on March 25, 2007, at the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago during the final performance of their sold out tour that played to rave reviews, Nelson, Haggard and Price (backed by GRAMMY Award-winning “Kings of Texas Swing” Asleep at the Wheel, led by Ray Benson, and Ray Price backed by his Cherokee Cowboys) deliver rousing performances of their greatest hits in the richest voices on this side of the Rio Grande. Their timeless music — warm yet gritty, powerful and honest — is bound to have viewers singing along from beginning to end.

Last of the Breed features the greatest hits of these Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, including “Okie From Muskogee,” “Pancho and Lefty,” “For the Good Times,” “Night Life,” “Crazy,” “Mama Tried,” “Always on My Mind,” “On the Road Again” and other hits.

When you support CET, you can get a DVD and 4 CDs.
