Another winner in the Sessions winning streak: A bunch of country kids—k.d. lang, the Judds, Rodney Crowell, John Hiatt, Rosanne Cash—join some legends—Carl Perkins, Merle Haggard, Bill Monroe, Waylon Jennings—for a concert in the chapel of Nashville's Fisk University. "This," says Jennings, "is the most hillbillies ever been in a church since Hank Williams' funeral." But Hank lives on as the whole crowd sings his song/Saw the Light for a finale. And earlier they pay tribute to lots of greats with Don't Be Cruel, Blue Suede Shoes, Roger Miller's Lock, Stock and Teardrops and Loretta Lynn's You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man Away. What a kick—a smooth, pointy-toed, snakeskin kick—it is.
