In his 85th year, Willie Nelson is more prolific than ever. In 2018 alone, he’s released his 67th studio album (Last Man Standing), a stirring collection of his favorite Sinatra songs (My Way)
and headlined the largest touring festival in North America (Outlaw
Music Festival). Willie is America’s music hero. It’s hard to put into
words what he means to singers, songwriters, musicians, and people all
over the world. Through life’s ups and downs, heartbreaks and rewards,
Willie and his songs have been a dear and constant friend to all of us.
He’s a trusted father figure to millions of Americans by lifting them up
through FARM AID and his annual JULY 4th PICNIC. He’s the clear
inspiration for dozens of today’s biggest music stars from all genres of
“Willie and his songs mean everything to music artists and fans alike.
Like Willie, they have inspired us to remain true to ourselves in every
possible way. This incredible lineup of artists on this show is a
testament to that,” says Blackbird Presents CEO Keith Wortman.
