Willie Nelson was born on April 29, 1933 in Abbott, Texas, and in honor of his 88th birthday, countless social media tributes rolled in, and they will on April 30th as well.
While he was actually born on April 29th, the Hill County courthouse didn’t record his birth until April 30th. He decided not to go through the process of changing his birth certificate, so he celebrates on both days – and we don’t blame him!
One very important person in Willie’s life that wished him a happy birthday, is his son, Lukas. He shared a decades-old photo of him as a young boy sitting in his father’s lap.
“Happy Birthday, Dad! Let’s get back out on the road!” he wrote alongside the sweet photo. Lukas isa successful musician as well and often tours with his dad alongside his own band, Promise of the Real.
