Country Crooner Caleb Kennedy Sings Willie Nelson's 'On The Road Again'

Tap your foot along to country crooner, Caleb Kennedy, singing Willie Nelson’s ‘On the Road Again’ on American Idol. You’ll want to get up and clap along!

Caleb Kennedy may only be 16 years old, but his talent seems like he’s been practicing for decades. He only started playing guitar and writing music three years ago and is mostly self-taught!

Caleb is from a tiny town in South Carolina, where he’d play his original songs at as many open mic nights as he could find. And now millions watch him on live TV.

His grandpa said, “The talent is there. It’s part of God’s plan.”

As for the song, ‘On the Road Again’ was originally released by Willie Nelson about 30 years ago. The song was written for the romantic film, Honeysuckle Rose and was nominated for many awards.

There’s no doubt you would recognize it, no matter who’s singing!

"I just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again:

It seems that since he bought his first guitar with birthday money, the life Caleb loves is makin’ music. What a perfect song choice!

In the video, Caleb is center stage rocking his cowboy hat and guitar. He’s accompanied by two other guitarists, but who are we kidding? We are totally mesmerized by this kid’s talent, and it’s like the other musicians aren’t there!

In the middle, Caleb invites the crowd to jump up and clap along. This kid definitely knows how to perform! He finishes the song slowly, by himself. You have that moment where you can really appreciate his talent for what it is.
