Willie Nelson performs with Lukas Nelson and Dave Matthews

Leaving you this weekend dear readers with this lovely little clip from yesterday’s Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing annual Grammy Week celebration in LA. The event chose to recognise Nelson’s “artistic achievements and creative genius” where Kacey Musgraves praised Nelson’s role as someone who transcends differences: “He has this really unique ability to unite and really bring people together. It’s unlike any artist I can think of. Underdogs, outliers, Republicans, rappers, presidents. Everyone loves Willie.” As Margaret Thatcher kind of once said. Have a good one.
