In the video, Nelson recalls the last time he saw his friend before Sinatra passed away in 1998 at the age of 82. After a show in Vegas, Sinatra wanted to spend some more time with Nelson, but the singer turned down the offer.

“I think the last time I saw him we worked a show in Vegas together,” Nelson admitted in the clip. “After the show he had invited me by his house for a little while and I had something that I thought I had to go do, so I always wished I would have stayed there and we’d have partied a little while.”

Listen to the full story in the clip below.
