Willie Nelson just put out a new record a few days after his 85th birthday. Last Man Standing. What I've heard was pretty great, and he's still out there, headed for another joint.* I've only seen him live twice over the years, but my first musical memories from the early 80s were Willie Nelson tapes in my dad's chrome green Econoline van. There were only front seats and the back had some kinda futon-like cushion. He used it for work, but also early family road trips (often to visit my mom's family in St. Louis), and so rolling down the highway that's how I learned Always On My Mind, City of New Orleans, Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys, Good Hearted Woman, and of course, On The Road Again. I think that's where I learned the calming drone of the highway and soaked up all those tunes.
*two references. Pun completely intended.
