Kermit The Frog and Willie Nelson have finally sung Rainbow Connection together... a duet 20 years in the making!

Over the years The Muppets' iconic green-felt frog has dipped his toes into the music world, including releasing his iconic song, Rainbow Connection, in 1979.

The song has been covered numerous times over the years - by The Carpenters (who never released their version), Johnny Mathis, Justin Timberlake, as well as Debbie Harry and Barbra Streisand who both performed with Kermit.

Country legend Willie Nelson covered Rainbow Connection on his 2001 album by the same name and since then his fans have been calling for the pair to duet it together. And now it's finally happened!

During the 2024 Luck Reunion festival at Willie's Texas ranch, he was joined by Kermit The Frog for the very first time.

The pair's duet was the opener of Willie Nelson and Family's headlining set at the festival, with Kermit also joining him on stage for a gospel medley of Will The Circle Be Unbroken, I'll Fly Away, and Hard to Be Humble.
