Kinky Friedman and Willie Nelson redo a Nelson oldie

Today's Morning Edition music is from Kinky Friedman and Willie Nelson with a new take on a song Nelson wrote and recorded in the 1970s, "Bloody Mary Morning."

It's a track on Kinky Friedman's latest album "The Loneliest Man I Ever Met."

He will be performing Wednesday night at the Turf Club in St. Paul.

In addition to his career in music, Friedman is a prolific novelist and occasional politician. In 2006, he ran for governor of Texas as an independent and got over half a million votes in an election that was won by current Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
