It's not everyday that we cover Willie Nelson -- in fact, there's never a day where we've covered Willie Nelson. But when the respected country musician took on a cover from the Pearl Jam catalog, it was only a matter of time before it came to our desk. On his new album 'Heroes,' Willie does a rendition of 'Just Breathe' -- the heartfelt ballad originally from Pearl Jam's album 'Backspacer. Vedder called to express his excitement about Nelson taking on one of his songs, comparing the experience to "smoking a great joint without all the coughing or the smoke. After talking about being on the mend from a recent injury and his love of Tom Waits lyrics, Vedder brought up the recent loss of "Duck" Dunn, which Nelson had yet to be informed of.

Only Willie Nelson could cover a Pearl Jam tune and make it sound darn close to better than the original. That's what the iconic singer did with his version of 'Just Breathe,' which is included on his new 'Heroes' album. As an added bonus, the track features the guest vocals of the singer's son, Lukas Nelson. As if you didn't already love the song enough, the Nelsons released a beautiful music video for 'Just Breathe'-and it's kind of a tearjerker. With guitar picking, a harmonica, Willie Nelson's signature southern voice and his son's country twang, the Nelsons have definitely remade this classic ballad into a country song. Plus, it looks like the two had some serious father-son bonding time while filming the clip. The video opens with Nelson and his son riding in a convertible with the top down on a beautiful, sunny day. For the next few minutes, it shows the two taking a short roadtrip: They stop to get gas, strum guitars on a picnic bench in front of a BBQ restaurant and kick back in a hotel while Lukas plays an electric guitar solo.
The song was triggered by a chord from "Tuolumne", an instrumental from Eddie Vedder 's soundtrack for the film Into the Wild. Willie Nelson released his version of the song on the album Heroes , as well as a promotional single. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved December 9,
He wants things to be low key for now. But when I am doing homework or studying, he's usually at my side trying to get my attention or laying on me or otherwise whining that I'm not paying enough attention to him. I won't want to start the whole process again just because its convenient for my partner. Because if you can't live and let live, you both need to dive deep into this stuff and figure out what you believe and want in your life. All you care about is the paycheck. Trust me, though--you will. He was home alone on his one day off while I took off with our kids to visit family states away. How can I be more supportive. And he likes the idea of us raising our daughter with the values the Mormon church instills on their youth.
