Happy Birthday, Budrock “the Illuminator” Prewitt! (March 28)

Sunday, March 28th, 2021

Happy birthday, Budrock.

Happy happy birthday Budrodk  

Buddy is the lighting director for Willie Nelson and Family,  and has worked with the band for over thirty years.    I took this picture of him in Denver, during the Democratic National Convention in 2008, when WN&F were performing at a private concert.

Hard at work

Budrock worked hard at Poodie’s Picnic on 6/28/09 in Austin, making sure things went smoothly.  I never saw him sit down once all day.

Buddy is generous with his pictures and sharing his collections, and lets me share them here, for us all to enjoy.  You can see more of his collections, at

“1977.   Not my first Willie show as a fan, but the FIRST Willie show that I was the Lighting Director. That was awhile back and I’m still here. Lucky, I guess. Greatful, for sure.”

Tomorrow we are doing Farm Aid. We've been doing them since 1985. It's about awareness and saving our farmers. Pretty great lineup….all are unpaid. Check out who cared in 1986 and 2019.
