Song for You

I have always thought of Willie’s friend, Leon Russell, as dirty ole Santa Claus. I was surprised to see how cute he was as a young buck. Willie and my mom knew, and now I do too! ha!

I love this song. Especially when Ray Charles or Willie sing it.

Watch this one tooo!

Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys – Faded Love

Bob Wills was the driving force behind Western Swing, a form of country & western that was broader in scope than the parent genre. A master at synthesizing styles, Wills brought jazz, hillbilly, boogie, blues, big-band swing, rhumba, mariachi, jitterbug music and more under his ecumenical umbrella. He has been called “the King of Western Swing” and “the first great amalgamator of American music.” Wills grew up in a part of Texas where diverse cultures and forms of music overlapped. His enthusiasm and mastery were such that he assimilated disperate genres into what might best be termed American music. (Wills called it “Texas fiddle music.”)

I took the paragraph above from YouTube. Thought it was great. I grew up dancing on my grandad’s feet to Bob Wills and his music stands the test of time for being really fantastic.  I think I may have sat in Bob Will’s lap in Turkey at some point. A lot of my family lives in Memphis, Tx just down the road and my great aunt Starr once told me a story that led me to believe some lyrics refer to her daddy hanging out with Bob. Thank God, Willie Nelson, Ray Benson & Asleep at the Wheel, Ray Price, etc are keeping western swing alive! I’ve been lucky to see Johnny Gimble many times. Ahhhhh haaa. Bring on home, boys…

Thank God, he made it here in the first place.
“There are no bad days” was his  slogan.
