“I love you, Willie. Thanks so very much.” — Waylon Payne

“I watched my friend Willie Nelson on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer last night. What an enormous honor it has been to have him as a beacon on this journey of this thing called my life. He has shown me as well as everyone in the business how it is done. Proof that when you make it about the right thing, the possibilities are endless. Hell, he just had another number one album. He doesn’t know it but he recently reminded me how important it is to be passionate about what you do. He also reminded me that I can’t do anything about yesterday and I can’t do anything about tomorrow but I do have right now. And right now everything’s ok. Pretty good mantra to live by. I love you Willie. Thanks so very much.” — Waylon Payne
