The performance that Willie Nelson gave at Austin City Limits, in which he performed “Bloody Mary Morning” to the pleasure of the audience, was one of the greatest of his career.
Nelson stood in the limelight and played his legendary guitar, Trigger, despite the fact that there were at least six other singers and musicians on stage.
This blues ballad was performed by Nelson in his authentic, unaltered voice, which was a perfect fit for the gloomy atmosphere of the song. He sang the lines flawlessly, with a great deal of heart and fervor in his voice.
It was an excellent live performance by one of the most well-known personalities in rock and country music in the United States. When Nelson composed “Bloody Mary Morning,” he was at the height of his creative powers.
Those who are familiar with the Red Headed Stranger will recall this performance as being one of Nelson’s many outstanding ones. And for those who have never had the opportunity to watch him perform before, it will demonstrate his abilities and showmanship.
