A Timeless Country Classic

Written by country music legend, Hank Williams, the gospel tune has been one of the most historically influential country songs of our time.

Released in 1948 the song was not originally an instant success for the singer but its catchy beat and inspiring message gained it momentum with fans across the nation. Since then, it has been performed by an extensive list of artists throughout time – with Lukas Nelson now being added to that list.

Like Father, Like Son

Fast forward to 2018. By now, everyone knows that Willie Nelson is talented. Between his writing, singing, acting, and activism, the Red Headed Stranger is one of the most recognized artists in country music.

Luckily, his talents have been passed down to his son, Lukas Nelson. Lukas has paved his own path, singing and writing music that touches the long-forgotten pieces of your soul.

A Beautiful Christmas Gift

While Lukas has co-produced music for major films like A Star is Born, starring Lady Gaga, he still remembers the legends that came before him. For Christmas, Lukas posted a video of him gently strumming his guitar and giving a wonderful performance of Hank’s “I Saw The Light.” You can check it out in the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
