Happy Birthday, Willie!

Willie Nelson turns 75.

Happy birthday to a true living legend and Texas icon.

My favorite factoid about Willie Nelson:

No stranger to controversy, he released the Tex-Mex style “Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other,” a song about gay cowboys, as a digital single through the iTunes Music Store on Valentine’s Day 2006, shortly after the release of the film Brokeback Mountain (which also featured Nelson on the soundtrack). He deadpans his way through the song, with such phrases as “What did you think all them saddles and boots was about?”
