KICKS Gold Mine Show Feature Video – Willie Nelson ‘Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain’
Today, we're debuting the KICKS 105 Gold Mine Show video spotlight song.
Every Saturday, during the show, we'll feature a legendary song on the air, plus we'll feature a video of that song on our website.
Today, it's the first number one song for Willie Nelson.
Willie Nelson took 'Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain' to the top spot on the charts in 1975. The song was written back in the 1940's by Fred Rose, and has been recorded many times...Hank Sr had a version in '51 and Roy Acuff also released the song.
It's also reported that this was the last song Elvis Presley ever sang while gathered at the piano at his home in Graceland before his death several weeks later.
The video is from the show Austin City Limits from the mid-1980's.
