Steven Tyler and Willie Nelson – “One Time Too Many” and “Once is Enough” Live
One Of The Best Aerosmith Collaborations EVER!
“One Time Too Many” was written by Steven Tyler. Willie Nelson and Aerosmith recorded the track in 1987. Willie Nelson is one of the most popular names in country music. At the tender age of seven, he has already written his first song while at then, he has joined a band. If that isn’t impressive enough, Nelson is more than a musician. He’s also a poet, actor, author, songwriter, and activist.
“Willie Nelson’s image and persona are only overshadowed by the character of his guitar,” Tyler said in the liner notes for the album. “To some, his imperfections and outlaw image ruffle feathers, to the rest of us it only raises the old question: Why f*** with perfection? He’s the elder statesman of cool and the ambassador of good will and high times.” — Rolling Stone
What made him extremely popular was his unique blending of country music. He uses more than one music style and he often fuses country with jazz, pop, rock or blues.
His “unique sound”, which uses a “relaxed, behind-the-beat singing style and gut-string guitar”, and his “nasal voice and jazzy, off-center phrasing”, has been responsible for his wide appeal, and has made him a “vital icon in country music”, influencing the “new country, new traditionalist, and alternative country movements of the ’80s and ’90s”.
This live performance happened on October 2, 2010 at the Miller Park in Milwaukee. It was during the Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope for America.
Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers.
It’s definitely a stellar performance!
