Willie ‘faces the music’ at 80


Read the High Note with Shaun Smith every Saturday on shorenewstoday.com.

After releasing an album earlier this month, it seems there could be no greater gift to Willie Nelson than the international recognition he received on his 80th birthday Tuesday, April 30 for a long and storied career. Then I watched SpongeBob SquarePants wish him a Happy Birthday on www.happybirthdaywillie.org.

The website is a collection of videos from musicians including Snoop Lion, Neil Young, Iggy Pop, Tony Bennett, Keith Richards and many more wishing Willie Nelson a happy birthday. It’s a fitting tribute for the man who is part of a small group of living artists responsible for shaping modern American music.
