On the Bus With Willie and His Boys

Happy birthday to Willie Nelson, who turns 85 on April 29. To celebrate the greatest Texas musician of all time—and to find out why he keeps playing and writing when his peers have all quit or died—reporter Michael Hall visited him on his bus before a show in Austin. Willie talked about why he keeps going, and sang a couple of songs with two of his favorite collaborators, his sons Micah and Lukas.
