“Willie played this song for me on his bus a couple of months ago before a concert in Wichita Falls, Texas. It’s one of my favorite of all his recordings, and I love them all. Willie and Merle singing together… does it get any better than this?” — Ruth Buzzi

Willie Nelson fan and Laugh-In star Ruth Buzzi stopped by Willie Nelson’s bus before the show in Wichita Falls, Texas, last October.

Ruth is very active on Twitter — you can follow her at @Ruth_A_Buzzi.

She has a very entertaining youtube channel, too; it’s like a variety tv show. She posts videos, and comments on them — like this NYE show with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra:

“I guess as long as there’s an Internet this’ll come back every New Year’s Eve. That’s alright with me…nobody had more fun that night than I… and the memories we made together will last my whole lifetime. Rest in peace, my dear friends, Frank and Dean.”
