Airs Saturday, November 26th at 3:30p, Sunday, November 27th at 1:30p, Monday, November 28th at 8p and Tuesday, November 29th at 2am on WVIA-TV

The treasure trove of honky-tonk hits and Texas swing tunes that turned the album Last of the Breed — by the legendary Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Ray Price — into a major-selling hit airs as a once-in-a-lifetime concert event. LAST OF THE BREED is part of special programming on OETA on November 28, 2016 at 9:30 p.m.

Taped on March 25, 2007, at the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago during the final performance of their sold out tour that played to rave reviews, Nelson, Haggard and Price (backed by Grammy Award winning “Kings of Texas Swing” Asleep at the Wheel, led by Ray Benson, and Ray Price backed by his Cherokee Cowboys) deliver rousing performances of their greatest hits in the richest voices this side of the Rio Grande. Their timeless music — warm yet gritty, powerful and honest — is bound to have viewers singing along from beginning to end.

LAST OF THE BREED features the greatest hits of these Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, including “Okie From Muskogee,” “Pancho and Lefty,” “For the Good Times,” “Night Life,” “Crazy,” “Mama Tried,” “Always on My Mind,” “On the Road Again” and many others.
