First, let's just get this out there: Lukas Nelson sounds a lot like his famous dad, the red-headed stranger better known as Willie Nelson.
Secondly, don't let the striking similarities in their vocal styles and deliveries cloud your judgment of the younger Nelson. At 28, he is the real deal and deserves to be treated seriously independent of his father's legacy.

ShowBiz Minute: Campbell, Swift, Woods
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Glen Campbell was a rare entertainer who got to say goodbye to his life and career in every way he knew how.
Before his mind evaporated into Alzheimer's disease, Campbell was able to go out on one last big tour, star in a documentary and record an album of his favorite songs, fittingly called "Adios." Three of his children sing on the album, which was released earlier this summer.
The country superstar died Tuesday morning in Nashville, Campbell's family said. He was 81.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Glen Campbell, the affable superstar singer of "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Wichita Lineman" whose appeal spanned country, pop, television and movies, died Tuesday, his family said. He was 81.
Campbell's family said the singer died Tuesday morning in Nashville and publicist Sandy Brokaw confirmed the news. No cause was immediately given. Campbell announced in June 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and that it was in its early stages at that time.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — On television and on stage, Glen Campbell was a superstar with boyish good looks, a flashy smile and wit, but it was his last performance on screen that exposed a more vulnerable side that touched many of his fans.

There's no way to hear Glen Campbell's farewell album, "Adios," except through the prism of his rapid descent into Alzheimer's.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — At first, Jim Lange envisioned himself as the next Jimi Hendrix, or perhaps Glen Campbell with his own TV variety show.
Those dreams ended abruptly the minute he heard melodic classical music on a nylon string guitar, an instrument that spoke to his heart and, irrevocably, to his soul. Try ignoring that.
Despite the esoteric nature of that calling (just making it as a musician is tough enough), he has managed to survive while staying true to his muse.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Grammy-winning guitarist and singer Glen Campbell is releasing his final studio album, recorded shortly after his Alzheimer's disease diagnosis in 2011.
The record label, Universal Music Enterprises, announced Friday that the album, "Adios," will be released on June 9. Campbell hasn't performed since 2012 and is in a long-term care facility, but his wife, Kim Campbell, said in a statement that he felt a sense of urgency after his diagnosis to record one last time.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Glen Campbell's wife says Alzheimer's disease has robbed the 80-year-old singer's ability to play guitar.
But Kim Campbell tells The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/2mgkkRQ ) that her husband occasionally breaks into a solo air guitar routine, which she says is "kind of fun."
