Budrock “The Illuminator” Prewitt, Lighting Director for Willie Nelson marries, retires

Willie Nelson’s long-time lighting director got married on his birthday,  and retired from his life on the road this month.   Budrock’s daugther, Zoe, will replace him as the band’s new iluminator.  “She ran her first light board at the age of two” Budrock said.  The young Prewitt has already changed the dymanic of the crew bus, by replacing the oldest crew member, with now the youngest.   New rules are expected on the bus, too, like toilet seats must be put down, crew bus no longer clothing-optional zone, etc.

No information has been released about who the  bride is,  but Budrock and the lucky lady reportedly left for their honeymoon in her private jet.  Bon voyage!

    Willie Family members don’t retire – even on April 1st – they die with their boots on – setting up lighting or whatever!!

    Wow!! What some great, but sad news! I’m happy that he has found happiness, but sad that he will no longer be at the shows! I’m sure Zoe will make him proud though! She learned from one of the best!! Private jet???!! Will be looking for the announcement of who the bride actually is..

    none of this about budrock makes any sense. yes, of course, doubtless an april fool’s joke. and a pretty good one, too.

    Didn’t fool you for a minute? It could happen.

  7. FCBurger says:

    lol. well, it might have fooled me for about 30 seconds. besides, literally anything “could happen.” anything.

  8. LindaLee says:

    I guess it could! I asked Buddy for a April Fools Day idea, and he sent me that!

  9. FCBurger says:

    This can’t be! Budrock is married to the widow Golden down by Baton Rouge. He & the good widow were married one beautiful summer night, with all the families there, the widow Goldens 5 boys ( with 3 wifes, 1 husband & a lady friend of questionable reputation), the widows 2 girls were there, each with their husbands, (altho the youngest never actually signed the marriage certificate) The good Widows grandchildren were there. Budrock was wonderful, he must have given 500 guitar picks away! They did look wonderful! They wrote their own vows & Budrock said, “..till the road due us part…” or maybe it was “…till the next tour…” I forget. It’ hard to hear everything after a bit of sippin’ whiskey. I told you all this so you would know the truth – he ain’t ever retirin’!
