Following in their fathers’ footsteps, two second-generation country musicians took to social media sharing their musical gifts and a song that their fathers loved.
Picking up a guitar, Ben Haggard (son of the late Merle Haggard) began singing one of his dad’s favorite songs, “Seven Spanish Angels”. The song was originally released in 1984 by Merle’s close friend and duet partner, Willie Nelson.
With his camera set to record, he playfully posted the video of him singing the first two verses with a caption calling out Willie’s son, Lukas to complete the rest.
“Grab the next verse [Lukas Nelson],” he wrote, tagging Lukas in the caption.
Just a fortnight later, and Willie’s son issued a response to his friend’s suggestion.
“[Ben Haggard] I’ll be your huckleberry,” Nelson writes. “#goodidea.”
Alongside the text, Nelson uploaded his own video of him playing guitar and singing the successive verses in the song – a direct reply to Haggard’s request.
Together, these two surely could give their father’s duet skills a run for their money and they certainly have inherited the “incredible country artist” gene!
