Willie Nelson

This American singer and song writer is one of the most recognized artists in country music. 

Although I am not a huge fan of country music, I am a huge fan of Willie Nelson. Anyone who can cover Coldplays single "The Scientist" as well as he does, deserves a chance in my eyes! 

Willie Nelson has proved to have had a very long and successful career. To date, Nelson has released over 60 studio albums and been regarded as influencing the "new country, and alternative coutnry movments of the 1980s and 90s."  His first album,"And Then I Wrote" was released in 1962 and featured the songs "Touch  Me," "The Part Where I  Cry," and "Three Days." 

Despite being 78, Willie Nelson can still put on a great show. There is no question that this country singer - usually seen rocking the long braids, bandanna, and cowboy hat -  knows what he is doing. With his endless list of great tracks and incredibly strong but unique vocals, you can be sure of having a fun night. I will add though, his gigs usually sell out, so if you want to buy tickets I would do so soon. 


Tour dates:
May 13th. UPAC - Kingston, NY
May 16th. The Wellmont Theatre - Montclair, NJ
May 17th. The Wellmont Theatre - Montclar, NJ
