92-year-old mother glows with happiness while listening to Willie Nelson sing a song she wrote
A 92-year-old woman had the surprise of her life when she heard Willie Nelson singing a song that she wrote and her reaction was caught on camera.
Lyndel Rhodes is a very special lady who had the luck of having one of the greatest country legends sing "Little House On The Hill," which she wrote several years ago.
Through some lucky connections, her song made its way to Nelson and her son, Buddy Cannon, captured a very cute video of his mother listening to his performance.

Rhode's son is a famous and accomplished songwriter who has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry.
During his career, Cannon had the chance of being involved in projects with names such as Bill Anderson, Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, George Strait and Reba McEntire.
A GOOD DEED
This allowed him to pass his mother's song to Nelson, who was more than happy to lend it his vocals, and it became the opening track of Nelson's "God's Problem Child" album.
In the Youtube video, Rhodes can be seen reacting to the song at her house. While the music plays in the background, she immediately identifies it as "Little House On The Hill."
When asked who is singing it, the adorable 92-year-old says 'Mister Willie,' before starting to sing along in a duet with the country legend.
Despite her cracking voice, it was clear that Rhodes was having the time of her life and, at one point, her feet could be seen dangling from happiness.

NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD
Recently, Willie has been facing a lot of backlash for supporting Democrats, but the 85-year-old said that he's not worried about what people think because everyone has the right to their own opinion.
Fans of the singer weren't happy to see him support Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke, but Nelson shrugged the controversy off by saying that he too had the right to his own beliefs.
