I've been a fan of Willie for years. I'm so glad he introduced his son at his last concert. Lukas is fantastic!  I look forward to going to see him in concert next time he's up.

They played a slower version on the now defunct "Artie Lange Show". I preferred that to the more uptempo version here. An excellent tune nonetheless.

Damn, Old Willie's got some great sperm!  That was a rocking good song.

@scottieboy100, does this song suck because you think it's supposed to be country or Texas rock?  Why does it have to be either, because those are his roots?  This is good ol' American rock with a smattering of blues, and it's awesome.

No, that is Willie Nelson's kid.  I've seen them in concert more than once, & Willie always introduces Lukas as his son.

he's the some of willie nelson, he is a great guitar player, but his voice sounds too much like bob dylan for me.

Caught you guys on Letterman tonight. You just made me a life-long fan. Way to go guy's. Teriffic energy and good ol' greasy, country-fied hard driving guitar anthem rock. Awesome. I almost fell off the couch.

Looks like Jay Leno all of a sudden had his head shrunk, started wearing glasses and moved his show to CBS?

I saw this band on the Waco, TX city cable channel and had to find out more. I loved everything they played. It was only later I found out that Lukas was Willie's son.

I'm about to buy my first cd of a band that didn't originate in the 70's or 80's - young guys that can play, have great lyrics and raw energy, Glory Alleluja! - the Apocalypse is upon us. LUCAS!!!

This comment is my endorsement of the performers mentioned. All Willy Nelson’s unendorsed music is some of the best there is. His movies are the best ever made. It’s hard to say any song is better than every song Willy Nelson ever did but, this song exhibits musical talent refined to its purest state. Even Hank Williams the third will have to practice to top this song.

He may be tired of saying he is Willie's kid now but on his way up and getting on Letterman don't think for one minute we would be seeing this if he wasn't Willie's kid!

Wow!!!!! Hell Yes These Guys are That Good!!!!! Yes I just saw them Play Live last Week. What Super Nice Guys Too. Your be Hearin' more About Lukas & P.O.T.R. on Down the Road. Da Wave

"It's only been 2 years and she already hates my dog" What a great opening lyric and guitar riff. I was really impressed when I saw these guys on letterman last friday.

While sloshing through the mud at jazz Fest in New Orleans after watching Willie play, some crazy lady started chatting with me and she told me to put Lucas' name in my thingy! And so I did, and boy let me tell you! It was awesome!

this really is good and it is beside the point that he's willie's kid. the guy rips some shit up.i like how they leave it till after the performance to mention him. tell them who your father is..."it's willie". classic. willie is a god-like institution ..but his kid stands on his own as a great talent.

Once in a great while, I see a band like this that gets to me right away. Lukas and his band are the real deal. I love the way he plays his leads on guitar without once looking down at the frets. Very organic. Claptonesque. He has charisma. This dude is cool. Willie should be proud.

I grew up listening to rap, later started to love Southern Rock just as much & became a huge fan of this guys dad, Johnny Cash, Lynark Skynard, etc - hearing them I kind of feel like they revived that genre for me - it was just a badass song - great performance. I really like the album title too.

When I first saw that and after Lukas finished pickin' the stings with his teeth, it looked to me like he spit out a tooth. It gave me the Willies so bad that I had to watch it a few more times to see what actually happened. GREAT SHOW !

"It's only been 2 years and she already hates my dog, she's up and down the street like she don't understand the law, and I'm pining for some time where I ain't looking at her face, and everytime she talks to me I'm staring into space, and I get antsy, real committment seems absurd, out here in the country forever is a four-letter word.

Yah, I was so surprised when I saw this. I was watching it and I was saying to myself...wow, someone is finally playing Letterman with some talent. Usually there is no talent these days on the late shows, as with all the music that people are making these days. I found out later it was Willie's son and thought, wow that is awesome. If you listen to his other material online he really sounds like his dad! I loved this performance...and awesome solo! Hope he can bring REAL music back.
