MUFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- The Nashville Ballet delivers its winter performance this weekend. The show will include three distinct dances.

In a press release, the ballet says the first performance is entitled Cryin' Out and features the music of genre-busting songwriter Gary Nickolson.

Billy the Kid is the second piece to be performed. It's based on the 1938 work choreographed by Eugene Loring and explores why the life of a typical 19th century boy veered into lawlessness.
