These are highly-qualified jobs with very long descriptions
When is a hit album not a hit album? When it is by two of countries biggest stars and still only moves 30K units. To put it another way, including Grandkids and Great Grandkids, cousins, seconds cousin, and former bandmate’s next of kin, nobody else actually bought the damn thing. Talk about going to pot.
Family Bible – Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard – One of Willie’s earliest songs, written in 1957 and sold to the highest bidder, it sure sounds like a standard now. This is a pleasant take on it, especially the way he sings “i can hear my mother softly singing….” – B
The joyful tune sounds like an instant country classic for sure, and who could have thought that the drug revolution would have come from two octogenarians? (Willie is 81, Merle 78)… We live in a weed culture, and for once, we got grandpas for leaders!
There will be stores (where marijuana has become legal, states like Colorado or Washington) that will sell Willie’s weed. Furthermore, it’s not going be exclusively Nelson’s production, he obviously wants to grow his own, but there will be ‘opportunities for other growers, who meet quality standards’
I think, and I believe I can prove this, that standing for three hours to hear Willie take a catnap is one of the seven rings of hell. It is puishment for all the wrong you’ve ever done. The only way I’d go is if he sang a medley of “To All The Girls I Love Before” and “On The Road Again”.
Always – Willie Nelson And Sister Bobbi – Always a pleasant song no doubt, but can he take it any slower. Look, I get it Willie is an old pothead with a sweet melodious voice and he can make music via alchemy but he can’t make invigorating music by alchemy and this is really faded love – B
For better or worse, this and not “Crazy” or “For All The Girls I Loved Before” is his signature song; it is the definition of a song sung blue, every knows it and the melody is so strong and the words so simple everybody can sing it. The definitive road song – A
So Willie cut his hair in 1983 to help Waylon who at the time was trying to get sober, and the braids ended up in a lot of 500 personal belongings, which are now listed in auction to help the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.Among other things in this auction, you will find Buddy Holly’s motorcycle, Muhammad Ali’s boxing gloves and robe, Hank Williams’ cowboy boots and a letter to Jennings from John Lennon,
The event has released its 2014 line up and surprise!! Jack White is on board. The ghastly man who is the color of milk fed veal will bring his sound to Raleigh North Carolina s Walnut Creek Amphitheater on September 13th.
At the # 1 spot, American artist: “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground,” Willie Nelson. One of Willie’s best – a beautiful lyric of self-less love matched with equally inspiring guitar work. A #1 country hit.
woohooo, my fave albums of last week are at # 1 and # 3!!! I’d like to thank the little people. But before we get too excited about itm add both albums sales together and you get… 225K. Hmmm
Early Days – Paul McCartney – The strange thing about this terrific song is how old Paul sounds, he sounds every inch his 70 plus years and the effect, as he reaches for a note out of his range, is less elegiac and more wearied – A
New – Paul McCartney – His best album since Run Devil Run is also his oldest sounding to date, he almost croaks “Early Days”, and with a new generation of modern producers behind him, it sounds pretty good as well – A
