Lukas Nelson shared a duet with his father Willie that showcases their family’s immense talent.
Willie Nelson joined his son Lukas Nelson for an acoustic, impromptu video cover that was posted on Facebook. The short video was shared on the official band page for Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, where videos of cover songs and candid moments with his dad are regularly posted alongside more professional and produced content.
This video is blurry, shaky and filmed with a handheld camera operated by Willie himself. Still, the video highlights their incredible musical talents, and supports that they are one of the most talented families in country music.
The song in the video, “Moonlight in Vermont,” was previously recorded by Willie Nelson on his 1978 album, Stardust. The original version of the song, written by John Blackburn and Karl Suessdorf, was published in 1944.
Only sixteen hours after being posted, the video has over 500,000 views and had been shared almost 15,000 times. Lukas Nelson responded to fans’ positive comments, saying “I’m glad people enjoy this as much as I do.”
