      EVENT DETAILS
      Willie Nelson & Family

      with Anna Vaus
      With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of Crazy, Red Headed Stranger and Stardust. Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In recent years, he has delivered more than a dozen new album releases, released a Top 10 New York Times bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul, headlined the annual Luck Reunion Food and Music Festival at his ranch in Luck, TX during SXSW, launched his cannabis companies Willies Reserve and Willies Remedy, and graced the covers of Rolling Stone and AARP The Magazine. In 2015, Nelson published Its A Long Story: My Life, the unvarnished and complete story of his life that landed him on the New York Times bestsellers list. He also released the studio album with Merle Haggard titled Django And Jimmie, which debuted at #1 on Billboards Country album chart and #7 on Billboards Top 200 album chart. In November 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award. The following year began with the release of Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin, a collection of 11 newly recorded Gershwin classics. The album debuted at #1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart, as well as earned him a Grammy Award for the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. In September 2016, came For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price, an album of newly recorded interpretations of 12 Ray Price songs. In 2017, he released two albums of newly recorded performances: Gods Problem Child, with 13 new songs that debuted at #1 on Billboards Country album chart and #10 on the Billboard 200, and Willie Nelson and The Boys (Willies Stash, Vol. 2), that includes 11 country classics and one brand-new song performed by Nelson and his sons Lukas and Micah. For 2018, he released Last Man Standing in April to celebrate his 85th birthday. It is comprised entirely of songs newly-penned by Nelson (and longtime collaborator and producer Buddy Cannon). In September he released the My Way, a collection of newly recorded standards and classic originally made famous by Nelsons close friend and musical colleague Frank Sinatra. The album won a GRAMMY Award for Best Traditional Pop Album. These new songs and performances add to his classic catalog, and finds Willie Nelson rolling at a creative peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road, which he still travels along performing for fans.
