Farm Aid Music Monday, Starring Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Friends

by Caroline Malcolm Fiore

Earlier this month, Willie Nelson, alongside Annie Lennox and Carole King, was presented with an honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music! Longtime friend, fellow member of The Highwaymen, and Rhodes scholar himself, Kris Kristofferson, joined Willie, and sons Micah and Lukas, onstage at the Commencement Concert to perform Hank Williams’ “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)” and donned a cap and gown to present Willie his degree at the ceremony. Congratulations, Willie!

For today’s Music Monday, we dug out some clips of Kris and Willie (and friends) performing at Farm Aid from our archives. Enjoy!
