In 2007, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Ray Price put on a legendary performance dubbed Last of the Breed. For a few weeks in December, you can relive their amazing concert.

Austin’s PBS affiliate KLRU has added the Last of the Breed concert to its early December schedule. The station famous for creating and sustaining Austin City Limits knows a thing or two about amazing live performances. Thanks to KLRU, Austinites can catch the concert on 5 different days (at 5 different times).

Last of the Breed KLRU TV schedule

Friday, Dec. 2 — 10 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 3 — 7 p.m.

Thursday, Dec. 8 — 7:59 p.m. (KLRU Q)

Friday, Dec. 9 — 12:29 a.m. (KLRU Q)

Sunday, Dec. 11 — 3:39 p.m. (KLRU Q)

But what about those of us who can’t get KLRU? Don’t worry, they’ve got you covered. Because for a one-time donation to the publicly funded station, you can purchase the concert in all its glory. CD? Sure. DVD? Yep. You can even snag a package deal that would be pretty phenomenal as a Christmas gift.

And if the donation rate is a bit steep, you can break it out into monthly donations over a year.

The Last of the Breed concert spawned the album of the same name with the Grammy-winning collaboration “Lost Highway.” Newly-minted Country Music Hall of Fame member Fred Foster produced it, featuring Vince Gill, Kris Kristofferson and others. The album sold more than 100,000 copies and landed on Rolling Stone‘s list of 50 best albums of 2007.
