Live and Kickin' was a 2003 all-star concert by country singer Willie Nelson on April 9, 2003, featuring music stars of diverse genres like Eric Clapton, Shania Twain, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Ray Charles and Steven Tyler. The concert was held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City in celebration of Willie Nelson's 70th Birthday (which occurred 20 days later). Announcers were Robert De Niro, Whoopi Goldberg and Bill Clinton. A large cake in the shape of Willie's iconic "Trigger" Martin guitar was wheeled onstage towards the end of the show.

Among the many notable moments of the concert was a poignant "A Song For You", performed by Willie, Leon Russell and Ray Charles. When Ray, in failing health, sang the line "And when my life is over, remember when were together, we were alone and I was singing this song for you", Willie is visibly emotional.

The concert was recorded and broadcast over two hours on U.S. television on May 26, 2003, as part of the USA Network's Memorial Day programming. A 55-minute CD with fifteen songs from the performance was released on June 24, 2003, and a DVD video with 25 songs followed on August 23, 2005.
