Last week, the CMT Awards announced the beginnings of a performance lineup for the 2012 show. The original bill was already pretty stellar, as it includes big names like Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney on the roster. But the performance schedule got quite a bit sweeter when a few country icons and future country legends joined the ticket.
Last night (May 14), progressive country star Willie Nelson stopped by ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ to talk about his new ‘Heroes‘ album, guitars and touring America in his legendary Honeysuckle Rose biodiesel bus. After the interview, the legendary singer performed ‘Texas Flood’ alongside his son, Lukas Nelson.
A statue of the red headed stranger, Willie Nelson, will be unveiled in , where else, Austin. The unveiling , not surprising, is this Friday, April 20th, at 4:20pm. There is a reason for the time and date.
One of the most played songs in country music is "Crazy", written and originally sung by Willie Nelson. But it is Patsy Cline's version that most know. In an interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal, Willie says Patsy's husband, Charlie Dick first asked about the song in 1962 in Tootsie's Orchid Lounge.
On this day in 1992 Willie Nelson staged his fifth Farm Aid Concert in Irving, Texas and 40,000 fans showed up. Farm Aid was put together to help the American farmer keep his land. The first Farm Aid Concert was in 1985, when a lot of farmers in the nation were losing their land. Willie stepped up to help out along with friends John Mellenkamp and Neil Young.
On "two for Tuesday's" not only do I try to feature well known duos or duets, but also artists from different music genres that get together to make music. On this "two for Tuesday" is a Texas legend and another Texan by way of Brooklyn. Willie Nelson and Norah Jones.
On this "Thirsty Thursday" is a song that seem more of a toast to an accomplishment than anything else. "Beer For My Horses" is a song written by Toby Keith. It's all about the good guys getting the bad guys and celebrating that justice as been served.
