Jimmy Fallon has been known to parody his share of classic country songs. The late night talk show host recently recruited actors Ethan Hawke and Ben Dickey, in addition to guitarist Charlie Sexton, to help him take on his newest parody.

According to Taste of Country, Hawke, Dickey and Sexton are all starring together in a new movie called Blaze, which is also written and directed by Hawke. The film is reported to follow the life story of country artist, Blaze Foley. In keeping with the country music theme, the three men joined Fallon in his own country music skit and parody. All four dressed as iconic country legends, with Hawke donning the braids and bandanna as Willie Nelson, Fallon dressed in black as Johnny Cash, with Sexton impersonating Kris Kristofferson and Dickey playing the part of Waylon Jennings.

Together, the quartet played their own version of the Willie Nelson classic, “On the Road Again”. As expected, the skit includes a variety of hilarious parody lyrics and witty bantering between all four of the “country stars”. This parody joins the ranks of other Jimmy Fallon’s country mashups, including a holiday-themed parody with Darius Rucker, and collaborations with Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.
