Happy Birthday to Ben Dorcy, and many happy returns of the day.


Mark Hughes, of the Willie Nelson & Friends Museum and General Store in Nashville, sent these.

“These images were taken during the “Ben Dorcy Day” on March 10, 1999. Waylon and several other artists turned out to proclaim Ben “a great among greats”.

The event was organized by Darrell & Mona McCall along with Frank & Jeanie Oakley. David McCormick of Ernest Tubb Record Shop hosted the event at the Troubadour Theater which is located just behind the Willie Nelson Museum.

Happy Birthday, Willie Nelson, from Legacy Records

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014


From The Archives: We love Willie Nelson, and we’re thrilled to wish him a very happy 81st birthday today. Our birthday tributes are usually accompanied by a photo of outlaw Willie, with long hair and bandanna, so we thought we’d throw a change of pace and bring you this image of Willie from the era of his association with RCA Victor Records; namely, mid 1960s.
