Willie Nelson In The Early 60s, Just Before He Became The Long-Haired Hippie We All Know

August 9, 2023

A rare video of Willie Nelson has surfaced, offering a unique glimpse into the pre-fame era of the iconic musician before he adopted the long-haired hippie image that has become synonymous with his name.

The video portrays a young Nelson with a more conventional appearance, sporting shorter hair, a clean-shaven face and attire that reflects the fashion of the time.

Believed to be filmed in Nashville for TV, Nelson sings "Hello Walls", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Night Light" and "Crazy".

"I wouldn't have recognized him - until he started singing. No mistaking that voice," one commenter said.
