    Willie Nelson. I know a lot of people don't like him but he is definately an country music man. I don't know which of these hits were from the 70s or 80s but I'm including as many of his hits as I can. Vote for your fav please!

    I went with "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys." I like the original by Ed Bruce better.

    Had to vote for "other" in this poll. I really never could stand Willie's voice so the only song I could tolerate from him was his duet with Julio Iglesias, "To All The Girls I've Loved Before"!!!

    I sort of like Willie Nelson. I always sing along to Georgia on my mind, so that got my vote.

    I love Willie!! All these songs are great, his version of the classic Roy Acuff song "Blue eyes crying in the rain" is my favorite from this list.

    Jeeze! I can't believe I forgot Always On My Mind. I actually have to vote other on my own poll! That is definately my favorite.

    I actually can't tolerate him, either, Triv.... The songs are good, I just don't like his voice. He has a new one out with LeeAnn Womack, 'Mendocino County Line', and I think my ears will fall off if I have to hear it a third time.....

    So, I had to go with 'Other', because as much as I don't like his singing, the song 'Seven Spanish Angels', done with Ray Charles, is a favorite of mine...

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?

    That one I did debate putting on here but didn't since it was a duet. Good pick though Val. That's a beautiful song!

    Other

    I'm with Triv on this one. I would go for "To all the girls I've loved before". Even though it wasn't a solo effort.

    No doubt Nelson was a talented artist, but he still had a bloody awful singing voice!

    I definitely agree with you there....wonder why it never got more airplay? Or at least it didn't on my local country stations. Beautiful song!
