Will Willie Sing For Weed?
Out in El Paso, a West Texas prosecutor is saying that WILLIE NELSON can resolve his marijuana possession charges if he will plead guilty, pay a fine, and sing "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" for the court.
The County Attorney, Kit Bramblett told the Associated Press on Friday that those are the penalties he recommended to Hudspeth County's judge Becky Dean-Walker. Bramblett said the judge specifically demands that Willie appear in person, and not plead by mail, which is a fairly common procedure in these type of cases.
Now, I have always been a Willie Nelson fan, ever since I was a kid singing every song on "Red Headed Stranger". It may seem weird to you, but for a long time now, whenever I think of Willie, I think of Paul Overstreet. I'm not sure how much you know about Paul, but he has written quite a few tunes that have done real well, including "Forever and Ever Amen" for Randy Travis, "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" for Kenny Chesney, and one of the tunes I've been singing out loud here lately, "Some Beach" for Blake Shelton... and this one.
