Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard working on collaboration album

It would be the trio’s first album together.

Three country music legends have confirmed that they are working on an album together. Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard revealed the news before their performance together at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night in Los Angeles.

The trio, which performed “Highwayman,” “Okie From Muskogee” and “Mamma’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” with Blake Shelton, told Billboard that they’re currently working on the project.

Nelson said, “We’re working on one now, yeah.” He added that it will be released “as soon as we get it together.”

Billboard also reports that the three have never collaborated on the same record together, but Nelson has worked with Kristofferson in The Highwaymen and with Haggard on 1983’s chart-topping Pancho & Lefty. However, it appears Kristofferson and Haggard have never joined forces before.

In case you missed it, here is the group’s performance from the Grammys.
