Lukas Nelson & Promise of Real in Vail (August 18, 2017)

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Twenty-nine summers ago, President Gerald R. Ford and Willie Nelson led the way for the opening ceremonies of a fledgling performing arts space alongside Gore Creek in the Vail Village.

Three decades later, the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater will celebrate in style all summer long, culminating in the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater 30th Anniversary Concerts featuring Rodrigo y Gabriela and Third Eye Blind on Aug. 18 to 19.

Lucas Nelson and the Promise of the Real will open on Friday night, Aug. 18, for Rodrigo y Gabriela and Dead Man Winter featuring Dave Simonett, of Trampled by Turtles, will open on Saturday night, Aug. 19, for Third Eye Blind. Two more opening acts are expected to be announced soon.

Tickets, passes and weekend-long VIP experiences for the celebration are on sale today and expected to sell quickly at http://www.grfavail.com.

“Great music, great experiences, a beautiful structure and an incredible mountain backdrop have made the Ford Amphitheater a special place for everyone who has a connection to Vail,”Dave ChapinVail Mayor

Cultural centerpiece

In the 30 years since its opening ceremony, the Ford Amphitheater has grown to play an iconic role in regional and local art and culture. It has welcomed top-tier orchestras via Bravo! Vail, international dancers and dance companies via the Vail Dance Festival, the GoPro Mountains of Music free concerts in June and hundreds of pop-rock icons to its now-storied stage.

“If you’ve been to Vail in the summertime, then you almost certainly have a wonderful memory from the Ford Amphitheater, whether it’s from a major performance from a marquee artist like Bob Dylan, a lawn picnic Hot Summer Nights free concert, an evening out at the Vail Dance Festival or a moment of inspiration at a Bravo! Vail orchestral concert,” said Jen Mason, director of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater for the Vail Valley Foundation. “We’ve even had hundreds of young people graduate here and held weddings — it really is a cultural centerpiece of life here in the Vail Valley.”

Willie Nelson announces he will release album with sons Micah and Lukas

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Willie Nelson is releasing a new album later this month, but he already has a whole new project in the can.

During a special interview for SiriusXM in support of his upcoming record God’s Problem Child, Nelson revealed he’s recorded an album with his sons Lukas and Mikah. There’s currently no other details on the project, but it once again shows that Nelson has no plans of slowing down.

Earlier this year, fans were worried about the country legend after he cancelled multiple dates due to unknown health problems. During his April 4 interview alongside producer Buddy Cannon in Nashville, he was clearly in good spirits.

A group of lucky SiriusXM subscribers had the opportunity to hear Nelson chat along with a sampling of new songs from God’s Problem Child, due out April 28. He spent time reminiscing on his early days in Nashville, throwing back beers in Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.

He explained that the beloved bar was the place Patsy Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick, first heard a demo of “Crazy” playing in their jukebox. A short time later, Dick drove a somewhat intoxicated Nelson over to their house. Although Willie refused to come inside, Dick played the demo for Cline, who immediately fell in love with it.

Stories like these, along with his description of a night where he decided to lay in the middle of Broadway just for laughs, showed off Nelson’s eternal sense of humor. And although there were plenty of lighthearted moments, Nelson became more serious when discussing the passing of his close friend and collaborator, Merle Haggard. He kept his comments brief, but noted his immediate connection with “He Won’t Ever Be Gone,” a track that penned in honor of Haggard on the day he passed.

Nelson is in town to honor Haggard with a performance at a star-studded tribute concert to be held at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena tomorrow, April 6. The event will mark the one year anniversary of Haggard’s passing.

Look out for Nelson’s interview to air on his SiriusXM channel Willie’s Roadhouse later this month. We here at Wide Open Country will also keep you posted on details of his new project as they happen.

Willie Nelson plays host to Luck Reunion, a family affair

by:  Kaitlin Carter

“You’re either in Luck, or you’re out of Luck,” as Willie Nelson likes to say, and he should know.

Luck, Texas is Willie’s private Old West town located just outside of Austin, and home of the annual “Luck Reunion” artisanal music and culture celebration, held amidst the madness of SXSW.

With Willie himself headlining the main stage, this year’s “Luck Reunion” offered an impressive array of artists on multiple stages. SiriusXM Outlaw Country listeners can hear a two-hour special featuring highlight performances from Margo Price, Parker Millsap, Valerie June, Brent Cobb, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Lily Meola, as well as Willie’s sons Lukas with Promise of the Real, and Micah with Insects Vs. Robots, plus a guest spot from Billy Joe Shaver with his old compadre on “Willie the Wandering Gypsy and Me.”

Willie’s exclusive SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse channel will also air a one-hour “Luck Reunion” special, featuring his complete set, along with an exclusive backroom conversation with host Dallas Wayne.

Recorded at Willie’s Luck World Headquarters clubhouse, additional “artist roundtables” were hosted by Texas hill-country hero Ray Wylie Hubbard, who teamed with Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel, Brent Cobb, Valerie June and Paul Thorn, and SiriusXM “Loon in the Afternoon” Mojo Nixon, joined by Margo Price, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Paul Cauthen and Parker Millsap.
