Monday Music: Living in the Promised Land

"Give us your tired and weak
And we will make them strong
Bring us your foreign songs
And we will sing along...

"And room for everyone
Living in the Promised land"

Last week, Willie Nelson became the first country music artist to receive The Library of Congress’ Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. He performed a song that was first released in 1986, "Living in the Promised Land," telling the crowd, “I think this is one of the most appropriate songs that we could do for this period in America. ... I felt like this might be a good time to kind of try to bring it back.”
