Thousands of country-music-lovin' Americans came out Monday to celebrate the most patriotic of holidays at the most patriotic party this side of the Mason-Dixon Line: Willie Nelson's Fourth of July Picnic.

Local photographer Jason Ryan was at the picnic and captured this photo of the 22-year-old Nelson son. We think Lukas Nelson bears a striking resemblance to a younger Willie in this undated photo (even their outfits are similar). Wonder if Willie taught him how to pose since he's still using the same posturing in this recent photo. We must admit, Lukas Nelson isn't too hard on the eyes.
