I mean, did you HEAR him? Willie. It totally caught me off guard. When was the last time you saw a commercial on prime-time TV that heralds small-scale farming? …
… Willie Nelson, founder of Farm Aid, sang Coldplay’s “The Scientist” for Chipotle Mexican Grill’s first national TV commercial spot during the Grammy Awards show Sunday night. Chipotle sources “food with integrity” for their restaurants, “finding the very best ingredients raised with respect for the animals, the environment, and the farmers.” The commercial, which showed a farmer’s decision to return to free-range, small-scale farming, was a stunner. (View it below.) Go Chipotle! Go Willie,
GO! I’m grinning from ear to ear. Oh, and Adele won six Grammys (including best record, song, and album). Her voice is sooooo soulful. And Tony Bennett, at age 85, won two Grammys for his Duets II album, which hit a milestone last fall when it made Tony the oldest living artist to have an album rank #1 on the Billboard charts. On it, Tony duets with Willie in “On the Sunny Side of the Street.” Two of my favorite guys, singing, together.
Be still my heart.
