Willie Nelson has been in the spotlight for almost six decades now. His amazing career has influenced so many of the artists we love and appreciate today. In addition to his singing career, Nelson also knew success as a songwriter, author, actor and activist.
He’s led a full life, professionally speaking, but his greatest legacy has to be his family. Yes, believe it or not, Willie Nelson somehow found the time to also have a fulfilling family life. His son Lukas is also an accomplished artist, proving that talent often runs in the family.
The clip below was recorded back in 2013, and it’s definitely something that you’ll want to watch over and over again. The video shows Willie Nelson and Lukas Nelson perform a cover of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe” at the Farm Aid concert in Saratoga Springs, NY. The two sound almost identical!
For those of you who don’t already know this, Farm Aid is an organization started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985. The goal of this association was to keep family farmers on the land. Since it was founded, it worked to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers.
