John Rosenfelder: Willie Nelson’s made ‘The Greatest Video Ever Made’ (Shoeshine Man)
by John Rosenfelder

“At 76, there is no technology or creative situation that the man Willie Nelson can’t master. In this incredible video, which Willie directed himself, we see him at his desk in the bus, but are soon taken on a TRIP including a mad roller coaster ride. In the midst of the madness, Sister Bobbie makes a brief appearance.

YouTube indeed. This may be the first video that actually shows a vaporizer in use (and its harrowing effects on the user). It’s also pretty impressive because it is NOT the first track from a very serious and well-produced Willie album coming out in a few weeks on EMI, “American Classic,” nor is it from Lost Highway’s quickee compilation “Lost Highway.”

It’s exclusively on air at Sirius XM’s “Willie’s Place” and “Outlaw Country” straight from “Willie’s Private Stash”!!!!

Nice one Willie!”
