Willie Nelson continues to defy logic. An 81 year old man should not be able to still tour the country playing music and singing but he still is. He shouldn't be getting a black belt in martial arts at his age but he just did. He shouldn't be putting out one of the best albums of his career at his age but he just did. Willie Nelson is not of this world.

Today Willie turns 81 years old. He was born back in 1933 and started out writing hits like "Crazy" for Patsy Cline and "Hello Walls" for Faron Young and then he took off on his own. What a great career it has been and still is. Here is a celebration of some of Willies work.
