I just finished posting a story about another Austin “home boy” icon while telling the story and showing the video of The Tyler Rose Earl Campbell…..the University of Texas “gold standard icon” for Longhorn football….Earl Campbell, running back performing during his Heisman Trophy winning year…..and then comes along this music video seen herewith….as Willie Nelson and his Family Band perform one of my all time favorites…. Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain…..cuz folks, it just doesn’t get any better than this.
Willie Nelson has lived and performed long enough now…..and he is still going by being on the road performing over 200 shows a year even in 2018….to become the most beloved and honored favorite son of Austin and Central Texas….cuz Shotgun Willie still sits around in his underwear.
The affection and respect for Willie Nelson in and around Austin is not as much for his awesome music…. but more for the incredible performer that he is at each and every performance…..as he always gives much more than the price of the ticket….as we at ImaSportsphile feel he is with the best of the best performers and entertainers of all time. ENJOY!!
