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

Friday, March 14th, 2014

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.  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.
