Dang I love me some Willie Nelson! This old red headed stranger turns 78 today... Happy birthday sir! For 71 years, dear Willie has been writing songs; an admirable innings.
Musician, songwriter, producer, actor and activist are the list of titles this Texan holds to his name. Aside all these he has managed to slip in 4 marriages and 7 children, such a busy boy.
His cheeky tunes are pure country, there ain't nothing quite like a musician who does what he wants, speaks how he sees it and delivers with natural flair...
Brilliant. Nowadays "celebrities" fit into their safe guarded media slot with an impending shelf life but a true star stays true and keeps on burning.
Willie, a major activist is the co-chair of the advisory board for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws... I hear you Mr. Nelson. Not only does he like his pot but he also owns his own brand of bio-diesel, simply named: Willie Nelson Biodiesel... I'm sold on that one (need to learn to drive first.) In addition, he is the co-founder and president of Farm-Aid, as well as the Honorary Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Texas music project. Wow, Willie is certainly a man with credentials. His voice is beautiful, his songs are fab fun and his beats are contagious, what a fascinating icon!
To celebrate this country stars special day, I want to share my very favorite W.Nelson song: on the road again.
Happy birthday Willie!
