Willie Nelson is looking happy and healthy, and just might be the youngest 87-year-old in the music business, based on his appearance Wednesday for Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Flanked by his two sons Micah and Lukas, all on acoustic guitars, the country legend performed “I Never Cared for You,” a song he originally cut back in 1964.

The Nelsons are one musical family.

It’s another welcome comeback for the patriarch, who ended a tour early last August due to lung conditions robbing his breath. He recovered, returned to the road pre-coronavirus and just released a new album, First Rose of Spring. Judging by his stint on late-night TV, he’s not short of energy (or breath).

The Country Music Hall of Famer also sat for a chat with guest host George Lopez. The pair covered a lot of turf, from all the “BS going on around the world,” to Willie’s love affair of the green stuff (“I’ve been smoking something my whole life”) and he admitted to once getting too high to perform (he said “sorry” to the audience, and went back to the bus).

Despite Willie’s troubles with breathing in recent years, don’t buy the stories about him giving up pot. “I read that somewhere. I had a nice laugh about it,” he said. The cigarettes, however, are long gone.

First Rose of Spring dropped on July 3 and is Willie’s 70th studio LP. Produced by Buddy Cannon, the album “has a lot of good songs on it. The title song First Rose of Spring is a great song,” Willie explains. “In fact, all the songs on there are good.”

Willie Nelson on Austin City Limits

Willie Nelson celebrates his 87th birthday April 30thth so Austin City Limits have shared rare footage of him appearing on their show all the way back in 1976.

Nelson’s wonderful appearance was recorded on October 4th, 1976, and saw the singer accompanied by his family band for a performance of 1975’s Red Headed Stranger from front to back. The episode originally aired as the first episode of Austin City Limits’ second season in 1977 some months after it’s recording and was Nelson’s second appearance on the show after he performed during the pilot episode.

Viewers are encouraged to donate to Farm Aid and it is available to watch now on YouTube following it’s premiere at 4:20 CT yesterday. The timing of the steam is obviously no coincidence, to celebrate 4:20 earlier this month, Nelson hosted a 4-hour-and-20-minute stream which, obviously, will be taking place at 4:20pm, will broadcast via Luck Reunion’s Twitch account in association with Nelson’s Willie Reserve cannabis line.

Nelson, longtime associated with cannabis culture and advocate for the legalisation of marijuana, established his of his own marijuana brand, Willie’s Reserve, the moment weed was legalised in different states across America. “I wouldn’t be alive. It saved my life, really,” he once told Rolling Stone about the impacts of pot. “I wouldn’t have lived 85 years if I’d have kept drinking and smoking like I was when I was 30, 40 years old. I think that weed kept me from wanting to kill people. And probably kept a lot of people from wanting to kill me, too — out there drunk, running around.”
