Willie Nelson & Family at the Venetian (Oct. 18 – 26)

Sunday, October 13th, 2019

by: Josh Bell

Despite his easygoing, laid-back image, Willie Nelson might be the hardest-working man in country music. At 86, Nelson has enjoyed a career more than twice as long as some of today’s country stars have been alive, and he shows no signs of slowing down.

Nelson’s most recent album, Ride Me Back Home, came out in June, following two albums released in 2018, and he’s been keeping that pace pretty much since the early 1960s. Ride Me Back Home debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s country charts, placing Nelson right alongside the genre’s hottest young performers.

Nelson has been just as relentless about touring as he has been about releasing albums, and even when occasional health problems have kept him off the road, he’s always bounced back quickly, making sure every fan who wants to see him has the chance to do so.

Nelson’s upcoming Vegas dates mark the second time he’s played an extended run at The Venetian, and he’ll be joined onstage as usual by his son Micah. Micah and Lukas Nelson both have become regular collaborators with their dad even as they launch their own careers, and if they follow his example, they’ll be going strong for decades to come.

The Venetian, 8 p.m. Oct. 18-19, 22-23 & 25-26, starting at $59.95 plus tax and fee. 702.414.9000

Willie Nelson & Family in Minneapolis (August 2, 2019)

Country legend Willie Nelson and bluegrass favorite Alison Krauss will headline Minneapolis’ Target Center on Aug. 2.

Tickets are priced from $250 to $39.50 and go on sale at noon Friday through Axs.

A native of Texas, Nelson spent the early years of his career working as radio DJ and performing live on the side. He released his first single, “No Place for Me,” in 1957 and first hit the country charts five years later with “Willingly” and “Touch Me.” Other artists, however, earned much more success by covering Nelson’s songs, most notably Patsy Cline who landed a massive hit in 1961 with “Crazy.”

After spending much of the ’60s financing his tours with songwriting royalties, Nelson retired from music and moved to Austin, Texas, where the hippie music scene reinvigorated him. He signed a deal with Atlantic Records in 1972, and while his debut for the label, “Shotgun Willie,” did not sell well, it earned rave reviews.

Nelson finally broke through with his 1975 record “Red Headed Stranger,” which launched the hits “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” and “Remember Me (When the Candle Lights Are Gleaming).” Nelson went on to become a constant on country radio and often found crossover success on the pop charts with songs like “On the Road Again,” “Always on My Mind” and “Let it Be Me.”

Now 85, Nelson shows few signs of slowing down. He continues to tour heavily and remains active in the studio. Over the past three years, he’s released five solo albums and a pair of collaborative records featuring Asleep at the Wheel, Tanya Tucker and his sons, Lukas and Micah.

Krauss, 47, is widely credited for helping renew interest in bluegrass music due to her work with her band, Union Station. She’s best known for her soundtrack contributions to the films “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and “Cold Mountain” and has won 27 Grammy Awards. She’s the third most honored musician by the Grammys, behind producer Quincy Jones and classical conductor George Solti.

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.
