Broadcast Music Inc is giving Willie Nelson an Icon Award.
‘Nelson certainly fits the bill. Before he became a star in the ’70s, his songs were hits for Ray Price (“Night Life”), Patsy Cline (“Crazy”), Faron Young (“Hello Walls”), and Billy Walker (“Funny How Time Slips Away”)’….according to Yahoo!News
At age 74, Willie is still kickin’ it, having released an album this year, and 2 in 2006. All I can say is ‘wow’.
‘Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain’
‘She Loves My Automobile’, with ZZ Top
‘Seven Spanish Angels’, with Ray Charles
Ponies don’t go in for awards and such…save your recs for the essays of substance 😉
