Two important facts about Willie Nelson, the closest thing Austin has to a canonized saint. First, the country singer recently canceled a string of February tour dates to recover from the flu. Second, he is a black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul.

Those two things help explain how relieving a picture tweeted Sunday by Nelson’s son, Lukas, was to fans of the Red Headed Stranger. Though one must admit, the photo’s breathtaking majesty truly holds up on its own.

He’s doin’ fine, folks.
