Happy Birthday Willie!

Birthplace of Willie Nelson, Abbott Texas
Today/tomorrow begins the 78th trip around the Sun for our hero Willie Nelson.  Happy Birthdays Willie!

I know everyone reading this will be saying Happy Birthday to the man in our own way.  In fact, if you are really into it, his site, WillieNelson.com, is soliciting vibes/impressions/photos/poems/videos/cover versions/sculpture/etc. as part of a contest they announced this week (see fine print below – it ends Sunday 5/2). 

The prize is a WillieNelson.com gift certificate, but I would say anyone entering has already received their prize – good memories (and more good times to come) with Willie Nelson and his music.  Since tomorrow is also Willie’s birthday (“observed”?) you can still announce it on the morning show.

And are you digging the new Rounder album Country Music like the rest of us?  Did I mention to you that KUSF, San Francisco added it?  If you have emailed about receiving a copy, please let me know if it hasn’t arrived yet. 

Thanks to the writers on this list for the great reviews too!: The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (“unwavering sincerity”); New York Times; Music Fog, LA Times; Fretbase, Blurt, and of course, The Boot.  Craig Ferguson has been airing awesome “Gardening Tips with Willie Nelson” this week too.
