One of our favorite country legends has once again been victim of a death hoax. According to his publicist: “Willie is fine or as he puts it in a song, ‘I woke up still not dead again today.’”
Those lyrics come from the song “Still not dead” Willie performs for his latest album Gods Problem Child -after being the target of multiple death hoaxes. The singer is 84 and still going. He has a sense of humor about the death rumors.
Buddy Cannon, the cowriter of the song says “[Willie] and I laugh about it,” According to CMT, “What can you do? People just say stuff. Maybe somebody heard a rumor that he got sick. Everybody gets sick. Earlier this year, it was rumored that he was on the edge of death. I was talking to him the whole time and he was sick. But he just had this bronchitis.”
Willie continues to tour with his family. You can see the legend on Thursday August 17th at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Get your tickets at AXS.com or click here.
