Watch Willie Nelson cover Frank Sinatra on ‘Kimmel’

Along with a performance of a new, original track, “Vote ’Em Out.”

On Tuesday night, Willie Nelson performed not one, but two songs during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The country music veteran kicked off his performance with a light-hearted version of “Fly Me to the Moon,” a cut from his recent Frank Sinatra tribute album, My Way. The updated arrangement featured bongos, shakers and a harmonica, adding southern spice to the jazzy number.

But the performance didn’t end there. Prompted by Kimmel, who requested “another one,” Nelson continued his set with an original new song called “Vote ’Em Out.” “If you don’t like who’s in there, vote ’em out,” the singer crooned on the opening verse, causing the crowd to erupt in cheers and claps. With the US midterm elections coming up, the number was quite timely.
