Willie Nelson is one musician who doesn’t stay within the lines of the country music box.  Willie likes to step outside of the lines and has surprised us with some interesting duet partners over the years. He’s teamed up with artists like Snoop Dogg and Julio Iglesias.

But this would definitely be a first for Willie if Dave Mustaine gets his way.

Dave Mustaine is with the heavy metal band Megadeath and he’s working hard on getting Willie to work with him on a song.

The Megadeath’s frontman tweeted this:

I wonder if Willie will do it.  Wouldn’t surprise me because it seems like he’s up for pretty much anything.

Don’t forget that Willie will be one of the headliners at the Taste of Country Music Festival this June at Hunter Mountain.  You can get the scoop on the festival and ticket info here.
