Willie Nelson and his fans

Friday, October 17th, 2014


“Willie always shows much respect towards his fans. He was changing out his strings when I asked him for a special request. The camera caught him saying “Sure!”. Bob Wills’ Roly Poly was performed shortly after this picture.  Love you, Willie!  God speed!”

— Laura Grunow Hewett

October 3, 2014 – January 3, 2015

This exhibition features rare memorabilia once owned by some of the legends of country music, including Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Porter Wagoner from the collection of country music star, Marty Stuart. The exhibition is augmented by a large selection of Stuart’s own photographs of country music stars, among them Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson and Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, which are a photographic love letter to the founders of country music.

Stuart is a leading collector of roots music memorabilia and a photographer of roots founders. His work is the focus of several monographs, including Pilgrims: Sinners, Saints, and Prophets (1999) and Country Music: The Masters (2008). As a musician, Stuart has performed and recorded with music legends including Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash, and is destined to join their ranks as one of country music’s most influential stars. He and His Fabulous Superlatives will perform in concert on the night of the exhibit opening on October 3, 2014.

Willie Nelson, for Rolex

Friday, October 10th, 2014


I don’t know if Rolex ever paid Willie Nelson for all the photos of him wearing their watches, but they should have. He wears them well, doesn’t he?

Ann Willis, from Texas, took this great photo.

Photos of Willie Nelson, Willie Nelsons’ braids sell at auction

Monday, October 6th, 2014


Photographs of Willie Nelson, Willie Nelson’s braids, Highwaymen photos and other items sold at an auction of items from personal collection of Waylon Jennings.

A pair of Willie Nelson’s braids went for $37,000 during a massive Sunday auction of outlaw country singer Waylon Jennings’ personal belongings.

Guernsey’s, a New York City-based auction house, staged the auction at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix. The collection included over 2,000 items.



Items drew in thousands of dollars: Jennings’ 1978 Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car drew $30,000 while a pair of country legend Hank Williams’ boots went for $8,000.

A rare 1958 motorcycle originally owned by Buddy Holly failed to attract bids with its asking price of $50,000.
