One of the most beloved and respected artists in American music, superstar Willie Nelson makes a welcome return to The Show at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa on May 18 with his full band, Willie Nelson & Family.

With a six-decade career and 200-plus albums, the Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Crazy,” “Red Headed Stranger,” and “Stardust.” Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist.

He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In recent years, he has delivered more than a dozen new album releases; published the book It’s A Long Story: My Life, the unvarnished and complete story of his life that landed him on the New York Times’ bestsellers list; again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985; received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul; headlined the annual Luck Reunion food and music festival at his ranch in Luck, TX during SXSW; launched his cannabis companies Willie’s Reserve and Willie’s Remedy; and graced the covers of Rolling Stone and AARP The Magazine.

In November 2015 the Library of Congress honored Nelson with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award. That year he released a new studio album with Merle Haggard titled Django And Jimmie, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country album chart and No. 7 on Billboard‘s Top 200 album chart. The following year began with the release of Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin, a collection of 11 newly recorded Gershwin classics.

The album debuted at No. 1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart, as well as earning him a Grammy Award for the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. In September 2016, came For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price, an album of newly recorded interpretations of 12 Ray Price songs. In 2017, he released two albums of newly recorded performances: God’s Problem Child, with 13 new songs, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country album chart and No. 10 on the Billboard 200, and Willie Nelson and The Boys (Willie’s Stash, Vol. 2), that includes 11 country classics and one brand new song performed by Nelson and his sons Lukas and Micah.

In April 2018, he released Last Man Standing to celebrate his 85th birthday, comprised entirely of songs newly-penned by Nelson (and longtime collaborator and producer Buddy Cannon).

And September saw the release of My Way, a collection of newly recorded standards and classic originally made famous by Nelson’s close friend and musical colleague Frank Sinatra. These new songs and performances add to his classic catalog, and find Nelson rolling at a creative peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road, which he still travels along performing for fans.

Mountain Jam festival moves to Woodstock Site (June 13 – 16, 2019)

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

www.poughkeepsiejournal.com

After 14 years at Hunter Mountain, plans are in the works to move the Mountain Jam music festival to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, on the Woodstock site in Sullivan County.

That’s according to Mountain Jam founder Gary Chetkof, who said Tuesday afternoon that said he was awaiting approval for the gathering from the state Department of Health.

Mountain Jam will be held June 13-16 on the property that hosted the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in August 1969.

Willie Nelson & Family, Gov’t Mule, The Avett Brothers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and Marco Benevento are among more than 40 acts scheduled to perform on three stages as Mountain Jam nods to its jamband roots.

Mountain Jam was originally launched in 2005 as a one-day celebration of Radio Woodstock’s 25th anniversary. The planned move would add another big date to an already busy schedule at Bethel Woods between June and August.

Bethel Woods, Chetkof said, “is like going to the Taj Mahal of sites. It’s all about being on an amazing piece of land. What could be more amazing than Bethel Woods and the home of the Woodstock festival… It was really just a matter of going to the promised land

Chattanooga is home to the Tivoli Theatre, a fabulous historic showplace known as the “Jewel of the South.” For over 90 years the grand old theatre has entertained Chattanoogans, offering everything from silent movies to Broadway blockbusters.

The Tivoli opened on March 19, 1921 following two years of construction. Construction cost was close to $1 million–a lavish sum for its day. The Tivoli’s interior reflects the Beaux Arts style popular for movie palaces of the 1920s. Its high domed ceiling, grand lobby, crystal chandeliers and elegant foyer were designed to transport patrons to a world of richness and splendor. Designed by the Chicago-based architectural firm of Rapp and Rapp, the Tivoli was built to accommodate both silent movies and live stage productions, making it state-of-the-art for its time.

From 1920s “picture palace” to community showplace for the 21st century, the Tivoli still offers Chattanoogans the finest in entertainment and cultural events. The Tivoli is the home of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Association, and also welcomes a wide variety of touring companies each year. With offerings from blues to bluegrass and classical to country; plus dance, opera and the best of Broadway, the Tivoli is at the center of Chattanooga’s cultural life. Its elegance and intimacy have made it a favorite of audiences and performers alike.

Willie Nelson & Family at Carmel, CA (Dec. 10, 2018) SOLD OUT

Friday, December 7th, 2018

www.montereycountyweekly.com

Prior to Merle Haggard’s final Monterey performance in 2015, the late Outlaw Country great reflected on the forces that brought Willie Nelson and him together to make music for more than 50 years.

“I think we have a deep respect for each other, we both appreciate the music that we write and it’s an enjoyable task to go record with Willie,” Haggard told the Weekly. “It’s a strange deal when we work together, because we also entertain each other; it’s a combination of a job and a concert.”

Haggard and Nelson met during a poker game in Nashville in the 1960s. They had remained tight ever since, and recorded several albums together.

In 2016, the pair’s final work together, Django and Jimmie – inspired by a mutual adoration for gypsy-jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and country legend Jimmie Rodgers – resonated deeply with Haggard. And it really didn’t have to with the songs or the overall feel of the album. It was something much deeper.

“We’ve recorded four times together and I don’t listen to the other three [albums], but I’ve listened to Django and Jimmie 50 times,” Haggard said. “It’s not spectacular, but Willie sounds like he’s a teenager. He came in there singing so good, it inspired me.”

Haggard nailed it.

Nelson’s immense body of musical work features some of the greatest records ever released by a Texas native. The Library of Congress honored Nelson with a Gershwin Prize for Popular Song (the first country artist to receive the honor).

Following an album of newly recorded interpretations of Ray Price tunes, Came For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price, Nelson released God’s Problem Child in 2017, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country charts.

Most recently, Nelson released My Way, a collection of Frank Sinatra standards performed like you’ve never heard them before, but Nelson’s masterful 2018 Last Man Standing – featuring all new original tracks – is the soulful work of a prolific troubadour looking mortality right in the eyes as he sees all his best buddies drop like flies around him:

“It’s getting hard to watch my pals check out/it cuts like a wore out knife/one thing I’ve learned about running the road/is forever don’t apply to life,” Nelson sings on the title track.

WILLIE NELSON & FAMILY 7pm Monday, Dec. 10 and Tuesday, Dec. 11. Sunset Center, San Carlos at Ninth, Carmel. Sold out. 620-2048, sunsetcenter.org
