Thanks, Phil Weisman, for this cool poster picture.
“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!”
This movie had such an interesting cast and has some of the funniest scenes in a movie ever. Everyone looks like they are having so much fun making this movie. It gave us the Willie Nelson/Jessica Simpson duet. The friends did a USO show in Germany together, and she comes out on stage and sings with WN&F when they are all in Texas at same time. And they made this video for us to enjoy:
Billy Bob Thornton talks about directing The King of Luck, a documentary about Willie Nelson, and how much input Willie had in the documentary. Thornton gives credit to Willie, and how great it was to work with him on the documentary of Willie Nelson’s career. Filmed at The King of Luck premier in Austin, Texas. Part of South by Southwest (SXSW) Film 2011.
