One of the underrated tracks on Kacey Musgraves’ unbelievable 2015 album, Pageant Materials, is her due with Willie Nelson referred to as “Are You Certain”.
It was initially written by Willie and Buddy Emmons and first launched by Ray Worth in 1963.
Kacey just lately sat down on the Texas Month-to-month podcast, One by Willie, to speak about her collaboration with the pink headed stranger.
She remembers getting excessive with him on his tour bus (naturally) years again, and asking him if he remembered the music. He pulled out his trusty guitar, set off, and sang it along with her proper there. Then, he was really the one who requested her if she wished to sing it collectively.
After all, she was ecstatic to finally embody it on her second studio album.
She talked about filming the music video at a random bar with Willie and her band, as nicely, and the way in between takes, they might sing previous nation songs collectively… now I believe we’d like a behind-the-scenes take a look at that:
“We have been simply singing all these previous requirements and classics, and I used to be singing in concord with him and stuff.
After which at one level I used to be like, ‘Hey, Willie, would you do a tequila shot with me?’ And he mentioned, ‘Yeah, do not inform my spouse.’”
I imply, in the event you do not take a shot of one thing with Willie when you’re filming your individual music video he is featured on, you have missed out on an enormous alternative in life.
And she or he additionally remembers taking pictures with him on what’s now one in all her prized possessions, a photograph strip with a pair pictures of the duo throughout what she remembers as among the finest days of her life to date.
And a sure picture particularly stands out:
“There was a photograph sales space there on set… like a $5 picture sales space strip. And I get in there, I pull him in there… it is such a cute picture strip of us.
And I simply received overtaken by the spirit and simply kissed him on the cheek at one level. And it was humorous ‘cuz I walked out and I did not notice there was a display screen on high of the picture sales space, and his spouse and actually everybody like that was there noticed the entire thing and he or she was like, ‘I noticed that. ‘”
Rattling, Kacey… the lady has guts. I suppose that is what the tequila shot was for.
Even when nobody was watching, that takes some braveness (as a result of it’s Willie Nelson we’re speaking about), however I am fairly sure that Willie did not thoughts in any respect. And it appears like Annie took all of it in good enjoyable , too.
And on the finish of the day, they ended up with a hell of a music and music video to indicate for themselves:
