Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Ray Price

Last of the Breed | A+E

With a collective age of 225, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Ray Price live up to this concert DVD’s title, which it shares with an equally superb studio album released last year. The three have worked together before in various configurations, and here, over the course of more than 30 songs, there’s also a bit of jumping in and out. Price begins the show with his own set and own band before giving it up to Hag (backed by Asleep at the Wheel, who also perform a couple on their own). Always a comfortable collaborator, Nelson then takes a turn with Haggard on five tunes and a couple with Price, the full trio knock out two together, and Nelson wraps it on his own. The round-robin keeps the show lively, and there are no weak links — these are three classic country voices, and though Price has lost some of the luster of a half-century ago, national treasures Nelson and Haggard still deliver their familiar repertoire as it’s meant to be sung.
