Country Rhythms (September 1981) (UK)

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

[Thanks so much  to Phil Weisman for gifting me this great magazine from the UK.  The country music magazines always have the best photos.]

Country Rhythms
September 1981

It takes three buses and two trucks to move Willie Nelson and his band and crew around the country for the over 250 performances that Willie gives each year.  But for all it grueling aspects, life on the road never loses that sense of freedom and adventure so important to country musicians like Willie Nelson, who spent much of their early lives yearning to escape from backgrounds of poverty and rural isolation.

These photographs by Michael Abramson, courtesy of Columbia Records, tell the story of Willie’s magic caravan better than worlds could ever do.

Willie Nelson, Connie Nelson and daughters Amy and Paula



As unspoiled by his fantastic success as any one could possibly be, Willie Nelson is always available t his fans after a show.  Although he values his privacy, Willie knows how important it is to maintain personal contact with the people to whom he means so much.

“What a great night. Loved this crowd of folks who opened their hearts to our show. I got to see my 2nd wife (as Jackie used to say) Connie Nelson after the gig. What a great gal.  Loved Louisville, that’s about all there is to say.

All kidding aside, there were many old friends who came to this gig. And as tired as I am, I would do it all over again. Thank You!”

“Two of my favorite Beauties: Paula Nelson and her precious mom, Connie. Paula, Willie’s daughter, is an award-winning vocalist — Connie has been my super pal for decades (No … she’s not old, never will be). I’ve never met a more caring individual. She’s always there if a friend is ill or having problems. When our good pal Ray Price was in failing health, Connie made daily calls of sincere concern. When he passed away, she made a solo trip from Austin to pay her respect for him, was one of the first to arrive at the church (just an example of many similar acts of respect and love). Both of these ladies reflect true warmth and realism. To know them is to love them.”
