Willie Nelson celebrates 89th birthday
A man arguably bigger in star power than any other celebrity from the Lone Star State has a reason to celebrate to the max Friday.
Stop what you’re doing and wish living Texas legend Willie Nelson a happy birthday.
At just the age of 7, he wrote his first song, later creating hits for Patsy Cline, Ray Price and others. As the 1970s arrived, he had etched his undeniable superstardom.
Although he retired in the early '70s, settling in Austin, Nelson grew restless and reemerged in the music business.
Even with a few health issues, he has kept his foot on the gas, performing at sociopolitcal events to aid others.
The Abbott, Texas-born country singer is 89 years young Friday.
