American treasure and icon (and one of my favorite musicians ever) Willie Nelson turned 85 years old the other day. This enchanting duet he did with Ray Charles years ago is, to this day, my favorite thing he’s ever done. Congratulations on a great life, Willie Nelson!
And speaking of Willie Nelson, do read this wonderful article about his guitar, Trigger, which has been with him for nearly 50 years. And then there’s Sheila O’Malley’s tribute, which is typically terrific.
