Willie Nelson‘s doctor may have ordered him to take some extra time off after battling the flu—which resulted in Nelson needing to cancel all his live dates for February—but the 84-year-old singer’s camp assured fans that he’s actually doing just fine and simply needs to rest his voice a bit more before hitting the road again.
We know, we know—it still sounds a little concerning. However, if one cannot trust Nelson’s public relations department, it might be harder to discount a report from Nelson’s own son, Lukas, who posted a remarkable photo on social media Feb. 11.
“My dad is a badass,” Lukas himself admits. “Resting in Maui and feeling much better, according to him .. thanks to everyone who’s been asking how he is!”
