Remember Willie Nelson’s ‘Mendocino County Line?’

With the recent announcement of Willie Nelson coming to the Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain, today I wanted to feature one of his songs from 10 years ago.

In 1989, Willie Nelson landed at No. 1 with ‘Nothing I Can Do About It Now.’ This would be Nelson’s final chart topper until 2002′s duet with Toby Keith on ‘Beer For My Horses.’ However, during this time Willie Nelson continued to record and tour non-stop.

One of my favorite projects from this period was an album called ‘The Great Divide.’ The album featured some great songs, including ‘Maria (Shut Up and Kiss Me)’ with Rob Thomas, ‘Don’t Fade Away’ with Brian McKnight, and ‘You Remain’ with Bonnie Raitt.  However, one of the singles from that album was always a favorite of mine, ‘Mendocino County Line,’ a duet with Lee Ann Womack. The song peaked at a modest 22 in Billboard, but earned a Grammy and CMA for Vocal Event of the Year.

Remember Billy Dean's 'Only Here For A Little While?'
