Thanks for sharing, that was very good. I've heard that song on the radio station I regularly listen to, but I've never paid attention to the lyrics. It got my tears flowing so I may as well go on and let it all out and while I'm at it I'll share Willie doing Pearl Jam's "Just Breathe".

That was so beautiful...can't believe I never heard Willie sing it before.

I listen to Willie's Roadhouse whenever I'm going somewhere in the car and they don't play nearly enough of his songs to suit me.

Thanks for posting that.

You're welcome. The spelling/grammar cops needed to get that person who made the video. I'd been hearing that song on the radio last summer and that's Willie's son singing with him. When I'd first heard it I was confused and even sort of mad, thinking to myself who is that trying to do a cheap imitation of Willie, hahaha. This is my favorite Pearl Jam video of the original song

I had to listen to it again....I had noticed the change but just thought Willie was having episodes of getting his young voice back. I've heard he has several children in music but have never seen any of them.

I like the Pearl Jam version better...suits his voice more than Willie's.

LOL, "episodes of getting his young voice back" was also what I'd been thinking at first, until I'd listened to the song more and more and decided to myself that someone was trying to imitate him. The kid can't help it, hehe. This is a kind of cute video of that son next to Willie

I loved that. The son seems to have inherited Willie's musical ability with the guitar. Was that another son on the left? I wonder if any of his children tour with him. I need to check this out. Thanks again for posting that.

You're welcome. Yes, that's another son. I saw that Willie's been canceling some concerts due to flu-like symptoms. With his previously reported emphysema that can be extra harsh and I sure hope that he's on the road to recovery soon. Poor guy. "Just breathe" is what he's probably needing to do a lot of currently.

Gotta disagree - Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground gets my vote. I got to listen to Willie last year at the Clay Center. Awesome show! I was truly amazed at how well he still plays the guitar at his age. No pedals, no effects - just flat out badass strumming and picking.

That's my kinda music too, Billy.(Whoa, lookout, here comes a flashback.) The person I am now can't believe the drugs I consumed in high school. They're sorta still with me, ha.

Lucky you. That one always gives me goosebumps.

I loved this one Billy. I love Toby Keith but didn't know the younger fellow but now I love him too. Seems he treats his guitar the same way Willie treats his. Wonder how many years it takes to wear a hole in your guitar? That's what is so great about going to live shows and seeing this kind of performance.

Billy, did you watch the video link I posted? It's good!

I can sympathize....:)

I would love to see a show of Willie with all his family in the music business. Never seen them but love them already.
