Per All Music, the country music-themed Eagles tribute “Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles,” released in 1994, featured a number of well-known country stars from the era, including Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, and many others. The lead-off single from the well-received album was a Travis Tritt rendition of The Eagles hit “Take it Easy.” When a music video for the song was requested from Tritt (pictured above), he had one condition: only if the original members of The Eagles also made an appearance.

Despite numerous instances in the preceding years when ex-Eagles insisted they would reunite only “when hell freezes over,” they did get together with Tritt for that video shoot, and they had such a good time while they were at it that reunion talk came shortly after. Also in ’94, the band recorded a reunion special for MTV called, appropriately enough, “When Hell Freezes Over,” and released an album. Since then, several different Eagles lineups have continued touring to this very day, and it’s all thanks to Travis Tritt, per Taste of Country.
