When The Cowboy Sings Youtube
Country music legend Willie Nelson has patented his image of long braids, a beard in the works, and his overall outlaw image and vibe. The singer has sported his signature look for years, making this resurfaced clip of a past performance hold an extra dose of shock value!
Performing on the Ernest Tubb TV Show, a very young and clean cut Nelson gave a heartbreaking performance to his 1963 release “Lonely Little Mansion”. Attaining background vocals from a group of sisters just behind himself, the singer gave an incredibly compelling performance, forcing our hearts to ache at the devastating lyrics. He sang, “Furnished with everything but love/ I’m looking for someone to come live with me/ I’ve got a large picture window / And a yard filled with trees.”
Viewers were not only stunned by Nelson’s chilling vocals, but by his uncanny appearance that is essentially the polar opposite of the icon we praise today.
