Willie Nelson – Still Not Dead
Willie dropped a new video for “Still Not Dead,” a tune that pokes fun at the reports of Willie’s demise over the years. Co-penned by Willie and Buddy Cannon, the song opens with the Red Headed Stranger singing “I woke up still not dead again today / The internet said I had passed away / If I died I wasn’t dead to stay / And I woke up still not dead again today.”
Willie spoke with CBS about this track and said, ““Oh, I don’t know — I’ve been killed several times through the years!” Nelson laughed. “And so I just thought I’d write something funny about it.”
He’s on the road again — performing, writing music, and a has a new album paying tribute to his good friend, Ray Price out for release. His attitude on age is summed up with this comment, “Everything’s going good. I think age is just a number. It’s the way I’ve heard it all my life: It’s not how old you are, it’s how you feel. And I’ve been lucky, health-wise and career-wise.”
We are lucky to have this country legend and wish him the best of birthdays.
