Shotgun Willie's Back on Tour!
American treasure Willie Nelson is bringing his famed "Fourth of July Picnic" back to his adopted home town, and he's bringing along Brantley Gilbert, Kris Kristofferson, Alison Krauss, Lee Ann Womack, and plenty more of his musician friends! For more than 50 years, the red-headed stranger has been defying expectations, zigging where others would zag, and going his own way in an industry that all too often favors formula and marketing over talent and uniqueness. After all, who but Willie would have ridden to fame on the back of a musically dense, thematically apocolyptic concept album, and then followed it up with a collection of songs pulled from the Great American Songbook? Anyway, tickets for the upcoming Willie Nelson Austin show are on sale now, and if you hurry, you can catch him performing his biggest hits and favorite deep cuts live at the Austin360 Amphitheater! Just check out the info at BigStub to learn more about the show, and get your Willie Nelson Austin Tickets while you can!
There's stars, there's legends, and then there's Willie Nelson, the country musician who for more than 60 years now has been defying expectations and releasing some of the most essential music in the American popular canon! Willie first burst onto the scene when he wrote the song "Crazy" for Patsy Cline, who turned it into one of the most iconic songs of the 20th Century. But Willie was never content to do things any way but his own, which is why he left Nashville after a string of unsuccessful solo endeavors, only to reemerge in his adopted home of Austin, TX a decade and a half later.
His preternatural crustiness, eclectic taste in music, and freewheeling sense of fun made him a natural fit for country music's burgeoning "outlaw" set, and by the 1970s, "Shotgun Willie" was one of the biggest stars in the genre. Even now, as he enters his 80s, he remains among the most vital voices in American popular music, mixing jazz, soul, rock, and mainstream pop into his iconic sound.
