Willie Nelson, Bobbie Nelson - 'Who'll Buy My Memories'

It’s a bumper year for Willie Nelson fans. The best selling ‘Band of Brothers” was released over the summer and as reported earlier, his second album of 2014, December Day, a collection cut with his sister and longtime musical partner Bobbie Nelson will be released next week .

Nelson has just releases a video for an updated version of his song “Who’ll Buy My Memories,” from his 1992 ‘IRS Tapes’ which helped pay of his well-publicized tax debt at the time.

The video is a quiet and intimate look at the Nelson siblings doing what they’ve been doing for over 40 years. Playing in beautiful harmony.
