I was going to climb the KXT tower and hang a bandana with giant braids today in honor of Willie Nelson’s 79th Birthday, but there is a chance of thunderstorms so here’s an inspiring picture instead. Happy Birthday Willie!
Willie’s still the man
Willie Nelson - “Can I Sleep in Your Arms”
This track, from Willie’s landmark 1975 record Red Headed Stranger, helped turn the songwriter from Abbott, Texas into a one-name icon and set the standard for his genre-defying career. Recorded live and off-the-cuff in Garland, this record’s mix of traditional standards, original songs, and choice covers mixed with the story of an itinerant, wayward preacher resulted in many considering it to be the greatest country record of all time.
