Budrock has been a good friend of mine, and helpful with this blog, sending me photos and pictures and sharing his collections with me. Busy before shows, he finds time to take a picture of a billboard, or poster, and sends it to me to post on the blog. He knows how much Willie Nelson fans love hearing about Willie and seeing Willie. Buddy’s introduced me to some dear people, too, like Guthrie Thomas, who left us too soon. His Willie Nelson and Family guitar picks, designed by Buddy and Guthrie, and produced by Guthrie will be collected and loved by fans forever. I love my collection.

Congratulations, Buddy, here’s to many more years to come.

Buddy has seen more Willie Nelson & Family shows than anyone ever anywhere!

“On the road again”. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt (SHOWCO lighting designer/director) catches a smoke during David Bowie’s 1976 Isolar “Station to Station” tour. Buddy resigned from SHOWCO in 1980 to work exclusively for Willie Nelson as his lighting director. Please like our FB page SHOWCO the Book. Thank you!”
