Willie Nelson's Handsome Son Sounds Just like Him While Singing Father's Iconic Song
During an annual cruise, Willie Nelson’s son Lukas, sounded just like his father when he sang, "Always on My Mind" with Red Young and Friends.
The video was recorded abroad the 19th Sandy Beaches Cruise during a late night jam session showcased Lukas’ talent.
If you close your eyes, you would think you are listening to his father, Willie.
"Always on My Mind" was first recorded by B.J. Thomas in 1969, followed by Elvis and Brenda Lee’s renditions of the song in 1972. In 1982, Willie won a Grammy award for his version of the song.
“When I was young, you were gone a lot, and I figured the one thing that would be able to bring us together, was if I learned how to play real well, and then we could go out on the road together, and I could be around you more.”
Much like his father, Lukas didn’t finish college and dropped out to pursue a music career.
At age 11 he wrote his first song and by the time he was 13 years old he began playing rhythm guitar with his dad’s band.
Lukas started a rock band in California with Anthony LoGerfo, whom he met at college before dropping out, named Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real.
The release of their first album followed. Later on, they collaborated with Neil Young just ahead of the release of their latest album "Something Real" in March 2016.
Lukas posted a heartwarming video of him, his brother Jacob and father Willie online, casually playing music together while relaxing in the screened-in porch.
