Well, it’s safe to say that Willie Nelson passed his talent on to his children.
If you haven’t heard of Willie’s son, Lukas Nelson, he’s the lead singer of his own band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. For Father’s Day this year, Lukas decided to honor his dad with a cover of “El Matador” and “Seven Spanish Angels,” which he posted on Facebook.
Before kicking off the tribute performance, Lukas shared a sweet and personal message with his dad, saying, “Happy Father’s Day, dad. Here’s ‘Matador’ and ‘Seven Spanish Angels,’ because I’m in Spain. I love yah.”
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real are currently on a European tour with Neil Young through July.
Lukas did his father’s classic hits major justice while playing his guitar and singing the song’s to perfection. You can hear so much of Willie in Lukas’ voice! Lukas is truly gifted and following in his dad’s musical footsteps, but well-deserving of his own success.
We have no doubt that Willie was honored to hear his son singing two of his classic tunes for him on Father’s Day!
