In a note to his fans on facebook that is as short and sweet as any of his songs, Willie Nelson posted to his facebook page this statement.

” To my fans,
I’m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out.
I’ll be back
Willie “

Nelson just released a new video:

In a career that never ends Willie Nelson has released countless songs and albums and played to tens of millions of fans over the last fifty years. From Johnny Cash to Waylon Jennings to Kris Kristofferson, Keith Richards, Hank Williams III, Ryan Adams to Winton Marsalis, Ray Charles and Norah Jones. A true American treasure Willie Nelson continued to create new music on his beat up acoustic guitars long after his legacy was fully established.
