YouTube Preview ImageFaron Young- Hello Walls

Faron Young performing a classic country tune written by a then-struggling young Texas songwriter named Willie Nelson. Young’s 1961 single recording for Capitol Records was a huge hit, topping the country music charts at #1 and crossing over as a pop hit too (#12). Its success helped to put Nelson on the map as both a songwriter and also a country music performer to watch – Willie recorded ”Hello Walls” himself in 1962 for his debut LP, And Then I Wrote.  Faron Young, incidentally, was also known as both “The Hillbilly Heartthrob” and “The Singing Sheriff” (we’re not sure which one he is here).
