Happy Birthday, EmmyLou Harris, born on this day in 1947, in Birmingham, Alabama. One of my favorite duet partners for Willie Nelson, and I have many favorites.
Willie Nelson is the performer’s performer. He is the type of talent who turns out hit after hit with plenty to go around — for instance — Faron Young’s “Hello Walls”.
And then the young tunesmith can build a barrage of block-busters for himself – like “Half a Man” and “Touch Me”. And it may not be five mintues before he comes up with more like these.
Willie is a personable young fellow, somewhat on the shy side for the success he has attained.Â He lives in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. He is a frequent guest on Dallas’ Big D Jamboree.
Everything he does is considered as big news music wise, such being the credit accorded his tune talent. He’s a fine looking male and certainly poses as one of the biggest talents in the western music industry.
