Back in 1974, Robert Earl Keen attended Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic in College Station, Texas. Robert even got to meet Willie and he still remembers the license plate number on his car, RHP-997. Well if you don't know why Robert remembers that, click on the above YouTube video from his album 'No. 2 Live Dinner'.
