Happy Birthday Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson is probably the last ,together with Kris Kristofferson, great Country and Western performers. At least one of the last who has the same caliber as Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, and Freddy Fender.

Nelson was born in Abbott, Texas, on April 29, 1933,the son of Myrle Marie (née Greenhaw) and Ira Doyle Nelson.His birth was incorrectly recorded by Dr. F. D. Sims as April 30.He was named Willie by his cousin Mildred, who also chose Hugh as his middle name, in honor of her recently deceased younger brother.

There are so many songs I could post but I will only stick to some of my favourite Willie Nelson songs.
