Willie Nelson was joined by Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Norah Jones, Ashley Monroe, Leon Russell and Neil Young on Thursday (April 18) to celebrate his upcoming 80th birthday during a taping of CMT Crossroads: Willie Nelson & Friends From Third Man Records. Musician Jack White hosted the special from his Nashville-based studio, Third Man Records. Nelson turns 80 on Monday (April 29), although most reference books cite April 30 as his birthdate. He released a new album, Let's Face the Music and Dance, on April 16. The CMT Crossroads special, which features Nelson performing duets of several of his most famous songs, is set to air in late June.
