Willie Nelson is a Performer’s Performer (and he’s a fine looking male)

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016


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 blockbusters for himself, like, ‘Half a Man’, and ‘Touch Me’. And it may not be five minutes before he comes up with more like these.

Willie is a personable young fellow, somewhat on the shy side for all the successes he has attained. 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.

Happy Birthday, Willie Nelson, from Bill Murray

Sunday, May 1st, 2016


“As adults we try to relax from the never-ending quest for reason and order by drinking a little whiskey or smoking whatever works for us, but the wisdom isn’t in the whiskey or the smoke. The wisdom is in the moments when the madness slips away and we remember the basics.”
– Happy 83rd Birthday Willie Nelson.”

— Bill Murray

Willie Nelson, James Caan, “Thief”

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

thief (1)

Professional safecracker Frank (James Caan) visits Okla (Willie Nelson) to get some advice for his life on the outside and gets some very good advice: “Lie to no one,” and then is asked to do the impossible — get Okla out of prison before he dies.

In addition to Willie Nelson, the movie, released in 1981, stars James Caan, Tuesday Weld, Dennis Farina, James Belushi, and others.
