TEMPLE – When Allison Dickson was 15 months old, she was diagnosed with Werdnig-Hoffmann Disease, a form of muscular dystrophy which affects the respiratory system.

Doctors told her parents she wouldn’t live more than a year after that.

Then, 3 years ago, she ended up on life support and in the hospital for five months.

So, at 37 years old, Allison wanted just one thing for Christmas: to meet Willie Nelson in Belton.

Dickson’s illness leaves her with several restrictions, including travel.  She’s not allowed to go further than 10 miles from home, meaning Nelson’s appearance at the Bell County Expo Center’s 30th anniversary celebration could be her only chance to meet him.

She also has to go through breathing treatments with a nurse three times a day.

“Willie is a legend,” Dickson said.  “He’s a national treasure.  I don’t know who isn’t a Willie Nelson fan.”

Allison’s post, asking for the gift of a meet and greet with one of the biggest music stars in the nation wound up in from of Paula Nelson, Willie’s daughter.

On Tuesday, Dickson said Paula told her it’s a done deal and she’ll get to meet Willie Nelson in Belton.

“We’re looking forward to the show here and it sounds like it’s going to be a great show for her and for everyone else,” Tim Stephens, Executive Director of the Bell County Expo Center, said.  “But certainly a special one for her if she’s going to get to meet him.  That’s great.”

March’s concert, although two months away, for Dickson, it’s a long way from where she was in the hospital.

“I don’t need easy,” Dickson said.  “I just need possible.”

Paula Nelson’s ‘Lucky 13’ album is such great listening.  If you don’t have it, you should.  You can get it on amazon, cdbaby, iTunes.  Here’s the Texas Monthly’s original review of the album:

She may have a famous name and famous father but Paula Nelson’s music and voice stands tall on its own. If anyone had any doubt, her new project Lucky 13 will soothe the most hardened of music critics. Let’s face it, sometimes talent is in the genes, and Paula has obviously gotten a good amount of whom and what her father is musically. However, she is not Willie light or really even Willie-ish. She has her own style and is different. In some of the guitar parts of Lucky 13 it is obvious that Willie’s fingers are on the frets but other than that this record is pure Paula.

Paula ranges from Blues to Beatles on Lucky 13 and the result is a fun musical ride with a little yodel mixed with jazz, blues, country, and kick butt rock and roll. Paula penned ten of the thirteen tracks and two of the covers are duets with vocal and musical star George Devore. The two collaborate on John Prine’s “Angel from Montgomery” and the June Carter and John Cash made famous Billy Wheeler and Jerry Leiber written “Jackson.” In both duets Devore and Paula’s voice match up perfectly. Those two tracks alone are worth the price of the CD and more. Devore can also be heard in many of the arrangements with his silky acoustic guitar work.

The absolute greatest joy of Lucky 13 is Paula’s keyboard work. She is a player of rare talent. The Keys are an instrument not used enough in Texas music but Paula’s uses them with masterful elegance. Keyboards are almost the backbone of Lucky 13. They are what make the record so different and unique. Use of the various keys allow Paula to move effortlessly through the genres while the listener is graced with audible nuggets and treats that keep them listening for more.

In addition to the duets with Devore the most notable tracks on the CD are “Fire Below,” “Baby You’re Mean,” “Find Your Way,” “Standing Tall,” and “Day to Day Love.” In all Paula Nelson delivers her own individual treat of a record in Lucky 13. At times it is more like Delbert (McClinton) than Willie but nevertheless it is a kick butt fun record and stands all on its own with or without a famous name. A must have.
