Another brilliant portrait by Pat-Purcell, this one from 2012.

Since the death of George Jones a couple of years ago, I think that Willie is now the "last man standing" -- the last living link to a bygone age (pre-MTV, pre-"New Country", etc.) of authentic rural-American folk music. There are some younger musicians who still perform that style of music as a kind of homage. But hardly anyone else who actually lived the kind of life that produced the music in the first place.
