God bless Willie Nelson. Even in these dark days, I occasionally take solace in the fact that Willie is still alive and touring. If you need a pick-me-up record today, and let’s be honest, you probably will, I highly recommend revisiting the duet album Waylon Jennings and Willie released back in 1978 for RCA Victor.
It’s a feel-good record, but not a party record. It’s a chill day on the beach, it’s a walk in the woods, it’s a balm for the soul.
Being a Texan perhaps makes me a bit biased, but I’ll argue any day that Willie Nelson is a national treasure, and we are so lucky to have him.
