Watch Willie Nelson’s Son Lukas Sing a Medley of His Dad’s Songs
Willie Nelson‘s kids clearly got their dad’s musical genes! The country legend’s son, Lukas Nelson, was on tour in Europe with his band Promise of the Real on Father’s Day, so the 27-year-old used Facebook to wish his famous father a good one … and impress his Facebook fans at the same time.
The younger Nelson performed a medley of his dad’s “Seven Spanish Angels” and “Matador” as a heartwarming Father’s Day gift. Between Lukas Nelson’s flawless picking in “Matador” and the almost-eerie vocal parallels between him and his father, it’s clear that Willie Nelson’s musical gifts will continue to bless fans for years to come. Readers can press play on the video above to watch the performance.
In March, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real released their third album, Something Real. Prior to that, the band worked with Neil Young, both on the The Monsanto Years album and on the road on the Rebel Content Tour. Nelson & Promise of the Real continue to tour with Young — dates are scheduled overseas throughout July — and on their own; a complete list of shows, including a stop at Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic, is available on the group’s official website.
Lukas Nelson is one of Willie Nelson’s two children with wife Annie. His younger brother Micah plays with the band Insects vs. Robots.
