Jamey Johnson and Bobbie Bare talk about Willie Nelson on Bobbie Bare’s podcast:

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018


Here are five of the fascinating things we learned from Bobby Bare and Jamey Johnson during this inaugural episode of Bobby Bare & Friends. New episodes of Bobby Bare & Friends will be released twice a month. Listen to the first episode here.

What Would Willie and Waylon Do?

“Nothing affects Willie,” Johnson says of country legend Willie Nelson. “Remember when Willie owed the government $32 million? You know what he said? He said, ‘It ain’t much if you say it real fast.’” “I was with him and Waylon [Jennings] at some studio way out in the country,” says Bare, “It was during the time period with the IRS. Waylon said, ‘Look over there. He’s just having a big time, laughing, carrying on. If the government had me by the balls the way they’ve got him right now, I’d be in the fetal position, screaming. Not Willie.”

“Happy birthday to my mentor, my highway-running, chain-smoking, golf ball-chasing, checkmating, coffee-drinking, bones-tossing, roundhouse-kicking, Django-picking, poker-faced pal, my friend the incomparable Willie Nelson.”

Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic, the gospel set

Friday, July 7th, 2017

It’s always exciting when Willie Nelson invites family and friends back on stage at the end of his show to sing gospel songs.  Thanks, Janis from Texas for sharing the moment with your pictures.  Looks like fun!


Jamey Johnson at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Thank you Janis Tillerson, for sharing these great photos of Jamey Johnson and his daughter at Willie’s picnic.  Here’s Jamey with Margo Price.

At the 2013 Picnic, Willie delighted Jamey’s daughter when he put a bandanna on her head.


Jamey Johnson’s daughter joined her dad on stage for a few songs during his set in Fort Worth at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic in 2013, and again for the gospel set at end of show.

She watched Willie taking bandannas from his amp, putting them on, then tossing them to the fans. At one point, when he tossed a bandanna, she ran and grabbed a bandanna and ran up to the edge of the stage where Willie was, and handed him the bandanna to put on. I was so sweet. Then, after that one got tossed, Willie grabbed one and put it on her head, and you can see how much she enjoyed it.


David Allan Coe watches as she ties it on.
