Clean Shirt is a split album by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, released on Epic Records in 1991. The two singers' last collaboration, after Waylon and Willie (1978), WWII (1982) and Take It to the Limit (1983), it was released at a time which coincided with both artists' commercial decline. All but the final two songs were written partly by Troy Seals. Clean Shirt was the duo's least successful album, peaking at #28 on the country charts and barely making the Billboard 200 at #193; "If I Can Find a Clean Shirt" was the only charting single, reaching #51. The video for the song depicts a comical Waylon and Willie as two outlaw crooks in Mexico in the 19th century.
