Willie Nelson Team Up with Harry Connick Jr. on Holiday Track ‘When I’m Home’
From Bon Jovi to Ryan Adams to Aaron Neville to Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson has collaborated with everyone. So his newest duet with Harry Connick Jr. isn’t really a surprise. Instead it’s just another sing-along to add to his ever growing list.
On “When I’m Home,” a track off the soundtrack to Angels Sing, the country legend joins forces with the soulful crooner for the gospel-leaning holiday track. On the piano fused ballad they sing, “When I’m home, I will sing ‘Silent Night’/ This Christmas when I’m home.”
Both Nelson and Connick Jr. also appear in the film, which is out now in select theaters. Connick Jr. plays the role of Michael Walker, a disillusioned history professor while Nelson plays Nick, the man who restores his faith in Christmas. The film also stars Kris Kristofferson, Connie Britton and Lyle Lovett.
