Tami Quote on Video:

A month ago New Zealand opened it’s borders for the first time in 2 years. The week they did, I was on a plane to Luck Reunion to perform at Willie’s ranch in Texas! I flew in my brother Todd from Canada, who has shot all of my videos, to join me and bring his camera.

We had one day off in between shows and spent it shooting on the Old Western town set from Willie’s “Red Headed Stranger” film, where Luck Reunion is held. Filming in the chapel, with the special memorial to Bobbie Nelson gracing the front, felt sacred and really overwhelmed me with emotion. This song was written about the loss of my Dad, but, with the loss of Willie’s beloved Sister Bobbie the week before Luck Reunion, it took on even more meaning to perform it with Willie and I really wanted to honor her as well. I love that we were able to preserve some of the flowers and tributes people left there for her.

The following night, we filmed my performance with Willie when he joined me onstage to perform “Beyond the Stars” in my set, while opening his show, a moment I will never forget as long as I live.

Tami Neilson With Willie Nelson - Beyond The Stars

Lyrics Beyond The Stars:

[Verse 1: Tami Neilson]
Last night I woke from a dream you and me were together
Tears on my face when I realised that we’re still apart
I close my eyes and I try to go back to my slumber
The only place that you exist now since you did depart

[Chorus: Tami Neilson & Willie Nelson, Both]
Beyond the stars I can hear the guitars
They’re calling me up to be with you
Beyond the velvet sky, darling will you and I
Dance to the beat of our hearts?
To the place where I can believe
That you will never leave me all alone in the dark
Take me away to the place you are, beyond the stars

[Verse 2: Willie Nelson]
Pull back the curtain of indigo, and come and go with me
Follow me up past the moonlight and beyond the sky
I won’t let the breath leave my chest without taking you with me
Here in my heart we will never depart, darlin’ we will fly

[Chorus: Tami Neilson & Willie Nelson, Both]
Beyond the stars can you hear the guitars?
They are calling you up to be with me
Beyond the velvet sky, darling will you and I
Dance to the beat of our hearts?
To the place where I can believe
That you will never leave me all alone in the dark
Take me away to the place you are, beyond the stars
Take me away to the place you are, beyond the stars
