Despite "breathing problems" landing Willie Nelson in the hospital over the weekend, his show tonight at House of Blues, deliciously sponsored by Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers, will go on as scheduled.
In the meantime, check out Thomas Fawcett's piece on Dallas producer Phil York, who passed away earlier this month. He uncovered a 2009 interview with York, in which he described how the recording of Nelson's "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" came together.
