View Full Version : 2 for 1 hair idols

Last night I was watching "Austin City Limits" on PBS and two of my male hair idols were on: Willie Nelson and Ray Benson in a temporary group called Willie and the Wheel. Willie has started wearing a single braid down his back instead of his trademark pigtails and his braid is now WAIST LENGTH!

Ray Benson's hair is only APL (he typically wears a pony) but it is beautifully silver, thick, and wavy.

I have loved Asleep at the Wheel's brand of western swing for a long time and the addition of Willie Nelson and his band made for a great hour of music.

I believe that is a repeat, it was taped in 2009. Willie recently cut his hair and is no longer sporting his long braid :(

ETA : Yep, I checked online and it was an encore presentation of a Feb 23, 2009 taping. Great music !

I can't believe I missed it the first time :( I usually check to see who will be on ACL but must have been doing something else.
