I've been lucky enough to meet some of my heroes during my life time - but this is one I've missed (so far!).
But I have seen him in concert 10 or 11 times. The last time was right here in Boone, NC.
and who knows - maybe next time I'll get to shake his hand and tell him how much his music has meant to me over the years.
In the meantime, Happy Birthday, Willie!!!
