Sen. Albertson: Leave ol' Willie alone

Serious fans of country and gospel music have long known about Sen. Charlie Albertson, D-Duplin, a state legislator with a nice touch with people, a mane of snow white hair and a flair for writing songs and recording them with his band.

Albertson, who represents Duplin County as well as Lenoir and Sampson counties, was appalled when local law enforcement officials busted Willie Nelson and his band last month before a concert down in Kenansville. Albertson, who has announced he won't run for re-election this year, has written and recorded a song "Leave the man alone" about that incident. It's worth a listen. Here's a link to a Wilmington StarNewsOnline site where you can read more and listen to the music.

Who knows? Maybe Ol' Willie will ask the singing senator to join him in a few gigs after the legislative one winds up.

Charlie is a personal friend of ours and he is a wonderful person (not at all like your average politician).

We(folks in his hometown)would love to see Charlie's song hit the charts... and we'd like it even better if Willie did ask Charlie to join him in a few gigs!
