Two Old Cats Like Ray Charles & Hank Williams, Jr.

I took a chance on a 45 – a duet from 1984 by Ray Charles and Hank Williams, Jr. – and I begrudgingly admit it charmed me:

“Two Old Cats Like Us” is the lead-off song from Ray’s Friendship album of collaborations with famous friends, such as Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson & Chet Atkins.

Two Old CatsTroy Sales, who wrote the song, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame four years later in 1988 – click here to check out his 20-year career highlights.
