WATCH this classic song Number 1 hit song of Willie Nelson. “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” is a song written by songwriter Fred Rose. Originally performed by Roy Acuff, the song has been covered by many artists, including Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Russell, and Charley. Willie Nelson recorded this song as part of his 1975 album Red Headed Stranger.

Willie Nelson is a country music icon. A unique and versatile artist, his innovative songwriting has resulted in No. 1 hits for dozens of artists – including more than twenty for himself – and a recorded output that is “so vast,” music journalist Bob Allen writes, “as to confound all but the most dedicated discographers.”

Willie Nelson’s awards are numerous, including 11 CMAs, 12 GRAMMYs, and 6 ACMs. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993, received the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 1999, and won the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize in 2015. In 2003, CMT placed him at No. 4 among the “Greatest Men of Country.” And, in 2008, his distinctive vocal style – once considered a deficit – earned him the No. 88 spot on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.

Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Albert Lee – Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain

Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain

Willie Nelson

In the twilight glow I see
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we’d never meet again

Love is like a dyin’ ember
Only memories remain

Through the ages I’ll remember
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain

Some day when we meet up yonder
We’ll stroll hand in hand again

In a land that knows no partin’
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
