Pistol Packin' Mama

I listen to a lot of different music. I happened to catch Willie Nelson last week on The View.

He performed an old country classic, "Pistol Packin' Mama" from his newest album. Even at 77 years of age, Willie still knows how to sell a song. Many are saying this album, simply titled "Country Music" is his best in years.

Note in this video how closely he interacts with his fellow guitar player and back up singer over his left shoulder. The guy has his eyes locked on Willie to know exactly what his boss is going to do.

Love it! Always have been a Willie Nelson fan. The most romantic song--"You were always on my mind." IMHO.

Shaw, he has another great song, "Moonlight in Vermont" on his "Stardust" album.

Certainly a classic.

Shaw's right...what a gorgeous song that is.
I also LOVE "CRAZY", which many people don't know he wrote.

I'm a jazz singer and "Moonlight.." is one of my signature songs...I may have to get the album!

As far as the guy over his shoulder AND THE FIDDLER (Did you see that?) watching him...they just show what excellent musicians they are and how much Willie might just improvise when they're least expecting it...another sign of EXCELLENT musicianship that they're so tuned in and will follow right along.
Thanks for this, Dave...I'm eager to get the album.

Favorite song is "There's nothing I can do about it now"
"I've got a wild and a restless spirit. Set to the rythum of the wheel..."
