Willie and Wailin'

Outlaw icon’s daughter displays some serious, er, chops

Oh, how we pity the sons and daughters of famous musicians. The lavish parties. The trust funds. The saccharine-kid-pop careers spawned on the coattails of achy-breaky, one-hit-wonder dads. From Carnie “Yo-Yo Diet” Wilson to ’90s Latin-pop hottie Enrique Iglesias, these famous kids are always sucking up, er, getting sucked into the spotlight. So when we heard that blues singer Paula Nelson, daughter of outlaw-country icon Willie Nelson, was coming to town, we sighed – that is, until we spied a viral video of the cute blonde karate-chopping some drunk guy’s ass at a concert. Turns out it was an April Fools’ joke, but still, it seems like Paula inherited Willie Boy’s aggressive nature and his musical chops, too.

Catch the Paula Nelson Band at the Rhythm Room,. You can check out singles from the band’s upcoming album, Lucky 13, on iTunes before you go, or just show up and cross your fingers for a good chick fight.
