8. When The Highwaymen reunited.
The year 1984 was an exciting one for country music, as four of the genre's pioneering musicians—Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson—came together to form a supergroup called The Highwaymen.
Twenty years later, the two surviving members of the group, Nelson and Kristofferson, reunited for a special and spirited performance at the 2014 GRAMMY Awards.
The reunion opened with Nelson and Kristofferson singing the group's hit "Highwayman," before Merle Haggard and Blake Shelton joined them for Haggard's "Okie From Muskogee" and Nelson's "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys."
