Saturday tunes: Why Worry Now?

Here's a beautiful song Mark Knopfler wrote for the Everly Brothers. That's Knopfler and Chet Atkins on guitar, and Michael McDonald on keyboard.

This is from a 1989 Cinemax special celebrating Atkins' music, and featuring several marquee artists (Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson were also on the show) influenced by him. It's of the same vintage as "Roy Orbison: A Black and White Night," which your local PBS station may have been pummeling you with during the last couple of pledge weeks.
