Can’t make it to tonight’s concert at the BackYard?  You can still buy a ticket, to support the cause, even if you can’t make it to Texas:
www.theBackYard.net.

Jamey Johnson, Jessi Colter and Shooter Jennings will headline the first annual Full Moon Full Life concert series on Tuesday, May 20 in Austin, Texas at The Backyard Live Oak Amphitheatre. They will be joined by several of their Texas friends, Lukas Nelson, Cody Canada, Ray Benson, Paula Nelson, Waylon Payne and more.

The live auction begins at 7:00 p.m, with the concert immediately following. Tickets are priced at $35.00 and can be purchased at www.nikkimitchellfoundation.org or www.thebackyard.net. Proceeds from the concert and auction will benefit the The Nikki Mitchell Foundation which raises funds and awareness to prevent, detect and cure Pancreatic Cancer.

The theme for this year’s Full Moon Full Life event in Austin will be “A Night Of Influence, A Celebration of Waylon Jennings and Hank Cochran.” Waylon, who died in February 2003, will be inducted into the Texas Songwriter’s Hall of Fame later this year, making this event an early celebration for the occasion. Hank Cochran, who died of Pancreatic Cancer in 2010, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this month.

The foundation’s namesake, Nikki Mitchell passed away in July 2013 of pancreatic cancer. She served as President and CEO of Waylon Jennings’ music for more than 23 years. During her tenure there, she made history of her own with the Bridge of Wings flight in 1998, where she circumnavigated the northern hemisphere as co-captain in a single engine aircraft. In December 2010, Nikki was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Taking the bull by the horns she consulted with renowned medical professionals around the country and her zeal for life throughout her 31-month battle never diminished.

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the United States and is expected to become the 2nd leading cause of cancer death by 2020. Research for the disease receives only 2% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget. Nikki’s last dream was to save others from the devastating disease of pancreatic cancer, leading to the formation of the foundation.

I took this picture of Paula Nelson and Ben in Austin, on New Year’s Eve. When I showed Paula the picture, she told me Ben had his hand on her ass when I snapped this photo. Ha. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic 2013, a grand finale

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

billybob21

It’s always exciting at the end of a Willie Nelson & Family show when other artists or family members come on stage to sing with the band, and it’s especially fun at the Picnic, when the artists who played during the day sing gospel tunes with Willie, and whatever other songs Willie leads them in. . Some folks had to leave for other shows or other reason, but the stage was full.

Ever wonder what it feels like to have Willie Nelson put a bandanna on your head at his 4th of July Picnic?

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

billybob34

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, then she came out to join everyone onstage for the gospel set and finale.

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. Something I’ve never seen, and it 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.
