Elvis Costello with Lucinda Williams – Wild Horses (Live in 2002)

A fantastic cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses”, plus an acoustic rendition of Lucinda Williams’ “Blue”. Elvis Costello takes the lead on “Wild Horses,” which they play with a full band, while it’s just the two of them on “Blue”. The video is from a show called CMT Crossroads, and it’s from the premiere episode. The idea was to bring two artists  together – generally one country artist and one rock artist – and see what happens. At least in the case of this first episode, the results were epic. The show continues running today, with a new episode every few months.
