Willie with Bella, from Austin Pets Alive

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

Amy Nelson:

“This is Dad with Bella, a most wonderful dog from Austin Pets Alive! I took her home and kept her as a foster at the request of the APA medical staff so they could could continue caring for her special needs. She was quadriplegic when she arrived at the shelter. She had collar burns around her neck from being dragged, and two bullets still inside her.

With love and bio transducer therapy (Senergy) , Bella was walking within a few weeks. The brilliant vets of Dogwood Animal Hospital (Round Rock) , Heart of Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital, and Evenflow Veterinary Herbal & Acupuncture joined forces with APA medical staff for two years treating Bella’s neurological disorder at discounted prices and discussing her case together. They made it possible for her to enjoy life. [Bella had a series of seizures that made her stop breathing. APA’s Dr. Ramsey hand pumped oxygen into her lungs every 40 seconds for five hours.] When she let out her last breath, it took out the electricity at APA, street lamps included. Bella taught us all that miracles happen and that magic is real.”

Love, Amy #WillieNelson#Bella

One By Willie Podcast: How Willie came to record Rainbow Connection

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021
by: John Spong

Willie’s daughter Amy Nelson was just five years old when she first heard Kermit the Frog sing “Rainbow Connection” in 1979’s The Muppet Movie, and she fell for it instantly. But unlike other of her childhood fascinations, her love for the song never waned, and she spent the next twenty years trying to talk her dad into recording it.



On this episode of One by Willie, Amy describes finally getting Willie to cut “Rainbow Connection” in 2001, and talks about the eponymous album that grew from that session. She describes the project as a magical, extended-family affair, recorded at the small studio in Luck, with a backing band of Willie’s nearest and dearest and Amy as coproducer.

Fleshed out with playground favorites and songs Willie used to pick and sing for his kids at bedtime—folk song “Old Blue” was one of the latter—the record was envisioned as his first children’s album. But, Willie being Willie, he ended up tacking some more grown-up songs onto the end of the record, which went on to earn a 2002 Grammy nomination for country album of the year. Amy discusses all that, plus her own decidedly grown-up songs as one half of the acoustic folk duo Folk Uke.
