“Linda—Here’s a picture we used on face book yesterday for ThrowBack Thursday. Thanks to Poodie, my sons and I visited Willie on his bus (for the 1st time!) in August 1980. Pictured are Chris, Willie, Tyler and Brodie Nelson. My sons were 10 and 6 at the time and are now 45 and 41…………….and, of course, still love Willie! Willie was 47 and I was 31. Picture was taken in Jackson Michigan at the Jackson County Fair.
Damn, it’s funny how time slips away.”

Thanks, Phil Weisman, for this great photo of Willie Nelson and his fans. I love these photos of Willie Nelson loving his fans, playing that beautiful music, and his fans loving him back. Remember the line from Honey Suckle Rose movie, I think he’ s talking to Amy Irving , she’s nervous about performing in front of the big crowd. Willie says, “Just throw something out there and see what they throw back.” Willie has been playing catch with his fans for decades, and we are so glad he does.

“Willie, don’t know if you remember this gig, it was in 2003. But Ronny Spears was one of your opening bands, they are from Frisco Tx. He passed away unexpectedly Monday from a heart attack. He was 51. I believe y’all met on several occasions. Just wanted to let you know ….you were one of his main music legends he loved and inspired him.
Thanks for the good times Willie, keep ‘em coming!”
