Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Jason Isbell Set for Outlaw Music Festival Tour Summer 2017

Willie Nelson is assembling a genre-defying roster of artists for a new summer package tour. The Outlaw Music Festival Tour will kick off July 1st in New Orleans with Sheryl Crow, the Avett Brothers and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. Bob Dylan, Jason Isbell, My Morning Jacket, Margo Price, Hayes Carll, and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats will appear on select dates of the six-city run. Additional shows and artists are forthcoming.

The tour, which emphasizes local food and craft beer, was born from last September’s Outlaw Music Festival, a daylong concert held in Scranton, Pennsylvania. After the New Orleans debut, the expanded festival will hit Dallas; Rogers, Arkansas; Detroit; Milwaukee; and Syracuse, New York. (See the full artist lineup for each date below.)

Nelson, a tireless road act, is gearing up for a busy few months. He’ll release his new album God’s Problem Child on April 28th, play the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California, the day after, and headline a four-night stand at the Fillmore in San Francisco in May. The Country Music Hall of Fame member honored his late friend Merle Haggard during an all-star concert in Nashville on April 6th, and previewed God’s Problem Child during an intimate SiriusXM Q&A session, during which he addressed online rumors of his death. “Everyone is always so happy to see me,” he joked.

Tickets for the Outlaw Music Festival Tour go on sale April 21st at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow & More for Outlaw Music Festival Tour in Georgia

When Willie Nelson calls to say he’s putting together a little summer tour, the only answer is “yes, where do I need to be and when?” That’s clearly the case with the country icon’s Outlaw Music Festival Tour, which will kick off on July 1 at New Orleans’ Shrine on Airline with an A-list group of pals including The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, plus other performers.

Other shows on the six-city outing that puts a premium on craft beers, local eats and crafts — a sequel of sorts to September’s one-off Outlaw Music Festival in Scranton, Penn., — will feature sets from Hayes Carll, Margo Price, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Bob Dylan, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and My Morning Jacket.

The first leg of announced shows will run through a July 16 gig in Syracuse, N.Y.  “We had such a blast launching and playing last year’s Outlaw Music Festival in Scranton, we had to take it out on the road this summer,” Nelson said a statement announcing the festival. “After last year’s Outlaw Music Festival, we made it our mission to assemble an extraordinary lineup and bring this experience to music fans all over the country,” added Blackbird Presents CEO Keith Wortman. “I’m looking forward to more unforgettable music moments and I’m honored to be working with these incredible musicians.”

Tickets for the general public go on sale on Friday, April 21 at 10 a.m. local time. Nelson, 83, will release his latest album, God’s Problem Child, on April 28, and he’s slated to take the stage at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California, the next day.

Willie Nelson & Kacey Musgraves To Perform at Ironstone Amphitheatre (Murphys, CA) (Aug. 18th)

When different generations of country music come together, something magical happens.

That’s exactly what happened when Kacey Musgraves teamed up with legendary Willie Nelson for the track “Are You Sure.”

The video is set in a small town bar with a moving disco ball that features Kacey and Willie lonely at the bar drinking. Shortly after, they join the band performing on stage for an epic duet.

The song proves that although Kacey sings modern tunes about issues today like ‘Follow Your Arrow,’ and ‘Mind Your Own Biscuits,’ she comes from an old country soul.

Kacey previously told Radio.com the collaboration came about while she was on Nelson’s tour bus and asked him why he doesn’t play the song live anymore.

“He couldn’t believe I knew it,” she said about the song from the 1960s. “I just really loved it. It’s very honest and very country, [and] it’s a neat perspective. He seemingly pulled a guitar out of a cloud of smoke and started strumming. I was, of course, dying inside a little bit.”

Now imagine sitting under the stars hearing both of these performers for one amazing night of music. Get Tickets before they sell out.
