Willie Nelson, one of rock and country’s most iconic stars, is still on the road and kicking at 84 years old. Willie’s son, Lukas is on tour to help out his dad, but from the video, Willie doesn’t need much help. You may remember Lukas as the front man for Promise of the Real who was on the road with Neil Young last year.
Willie was joined last night for an Outlaw Music Festival in Holmdel, NJ. The line-up included Willie, Lukas and the Promise of the Real, Sheryl Crow, Avett Brothers and more.
The recent and impending hurricanes are weighing heavy on everyone’s minds and Willie took the opportunity to pay homage to his home state last night. Lukas and Willie went through a smokin’ rendition of the blues standard “Texas Flood” which was made popular by Stevie Ray Vaughn. While Lukas’ 28 year-old hands navigate the fretboard with ease, Willie shows he’s still got some chops as well.
Thanks to rdeal1999 for the footage. The video may be a little shaky, but the sound is great.
