Most of the time, the younger generation of artists cover songs of the pioneers, but if it’s the other way around, it’s a different story. We won’t forget that time when Johnny Cash covered U2’s song “One.” And now, we have legendary Willie Nelson sings a version of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe” with his son Lukas. Together, they silenced the room. Only a stone will keep from fighting tears after listening.
We just can’t help but fall in love with Willie and Lukas’ version of the song.
Lukas is one of Willie’s seven children. He is currently following his father’s star-studded footsteps. The 28-year-old country music grown gentleman sounds almost identical to his father when he’s on stage by himself. You can just imagine how intensifying it is when the two crooners take the stage together.
The poignant music video of “Just Breathe” was shot in Central Texas. It ends with an electric guitar coda of sorts by Lukas.
The Nelson Boys
To add to the special menu, watch the video below of Willie and his two lovely sons, Lukas and Micah. Together, they shared a sweet moment and performed an acoustic version of “Just Breathe.” The Nelson clan is one talented bunch. At a private family gathering, Willie Nelson and his sons got together and did what they do best — make amazing music.
Seeing Willie sing with his sons is just so special. The bond between them undeniably shows that Willie definitely passed his musical talent onto his boys.
On the other hand, Lukas and Micah both have music careers of their own. Lukas has a band, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real. The band tours through the summer with Neil Young and Shooter Jennings in selected cities. Micah is also a dedicated actor, musician, and artist!
