God bless Willie Nelson.
The country icon recently recorded a Gospel song by Lyndel Rhodes, a 92-year-old songwriter, called “Little House on the Hill.” That wouldn’t be particularly noteworthy were it not for the video her son, Buddy Cannon, recently uploaded a video of Rhodes listening to it for the first time. If it doesn’t renew your faith, you check your pulse.
Rhodes’ voice is almost gone in the video—she can barely sing along to the track—but the way she wiggles her toes to the music is priceless.
It’s unclear how Nelson and Rhodes originally crossed paths, but she appeared on his 2013 duets album, To All the Girls, starring in the track “It Won’t Be Very Long” with the Secret Sisters.
Rhodes has experienced some viral fame before. Her Sunday Gospel jam session with her son in 2014 has been viewed more than 10 million times on Facebook.

Nelson has even been known to rock a shirt that playfully boasts Rhodes is an even better harmonica player than his longtime sideman, Mickey Raphael.
I’m inclined to agree.
