Richie Creates Willie Nelson Spoof Song To Promote Taste Of Country Music Festival [AUDIO]

I’ve always had a great time at least attempting to impersonate one of my favorite country artists, Willie Nelson.  I’m not sure if I sound more like Willie here or George H.W. Bush, but either way, I had a blast recording this. This song rhymes all of the artists coming to the fantastic Taste of Country Music Festival.  Have you gotten your tickets yet?

He’s such a great artist, and you can tell that he has a cool sense of humor.  Hopefully he would get a chuckle out of this little ditty. You know the saying – “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”.  I did this out of love, Willie!!

Please listen carefully. You’ll hear all the artists that are coming. What a lineup!

I had the privilege of meeting some incredible country artists in my day, but I would love to meet this guy!  I hope you enjoyed hearing this is much as I did writing it.   The song, by the way, ended up on our company’s national site.  That is another fantastic source of country music news, by the way.

Who are YOU excited to see?  Would love to know.  Leave your comments below.
