Willie Nelson Tour News and Updates
Willie Nelson is not only one of country music's greatest singer-songwriters, but he is one of the most influential American figures of our time. As an author, philanthropist, actor and activist, Nelson's reach stretches far beyond the realm of radio, but the Red Headed Stranger's first love will always be country music. Nelson rose to fame in the 1960s as a musician of the "outlaw country" genre that challenged the previously accepted conservatism of Nashville sound, and he hasn't stopped since. The iconic singer has won innumerable Grammys, CMAs, ACMs and AMAs including multiple Lifetime Achievement awards for his ability to transcend genre and trade.
Now is your chance to hear "Crazy," "Always on My Mind" and "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" in person! See the bandana-and-braid-wearing artist live with Willie Nelson tickets in 2014! Willie Nelson will be on an extensive North American tour, kicking off 2/28 in Durant, OK and snaking through Miami, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Berkeley, New York, Oklahoma City, Milwaukee and Jackson, before finishing in Houston on Nov 26. Nelson will be joined by Alison Krauss and Kacey Musgraves on select dates.
Willie Nelson was born in Abbott, TX during The Great Depression and was first exposed to music by the Methodist Church his grandmother attended. He's maintained a down-home persona all his life: over his five decade-long career, Nelson has endeared himself to fans by staying hours after shows to pose for pictures and sign autographs. The international star released one of music's finest albums "Shotgun Willie" in 1973, and many others including "Phases and Stages," "Red Headed Stranger" and "Highwayman" with Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson.
