Willie Nelson – “Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me” (Ray Price Cover)

One legend pays tribute to another on Willie Nelson’s new album For The Good Times, a collection of country classics made famous by the late Ray Price. Today we’re happy to present one of those covers. “Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me” is a weepy, string-laden shuffle that communicates more pain and beauty in under three minutes than most musicians can muster in an entire career. Nelson briefly played in Price’s backing band, the Cherokee Cowboys, and his reverence for the man’s music shines through in this performance. Listen below.

For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price is out 9/16 on Sony. Pre-order it from Amazon or iTunes.
