Willie Nelson's son Austin is not unknown.

Nice use of the technology and nice rendition of that great tune.

Well, he wasn't much known to me, anyway. I'm not big on country music anymore, haven't been for a very long time. He sure did a good job here, though.

I've seen that around the world method before, and this one turned out nicely.

BTW have you seen a full video from last night, with Elton & Lada Gaga doing their performances from home?
