Happy Birthday, to a true Legend: Willie Nelson turns 82 (but he won’t slow down)

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

by:  Samantha Stephens

The unmistakable twang, those braids, that cheeky yet endearing grin, the bandana and, of course, the songs. Is there anything more timeless or iconic than music legend Willie Nelson?

I don’t think so.

Nelson is once again taking two days this week to celebrate his 82nd birthday, and he’s still cooler than you and I will ever be. As for the two-day birthday party, it’s been that way for many years.

When he joined the Air Force and received his birth certificate, the date was listed as April 30, 1933. However, his sister Bobbie Nelson and other family members are sure he was born shortly before midnight on April 29.

Nelson has long been one of the hardest working folks on the planet and still shows absolutely no signs of slowing down.

On Tuesday (May 5), It’s a Long Story: My Life, the memoir he wrote with David Ritz, arrives in bookstores. The following month, Nelson and Merle Haggard are releasing a duets album, Django and Jimmie, named for the title song about two of their primary musical influences — Country Music Hall of Fame member Jimmie Rodgers and gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt.

And, of course, he’s even behind Willie’s Reserve, a new cannabis brand which — according to Nelson’s website — reflects his “longstanding experience and his commitment to regulated, natural and high quality strains of marijuana in U.S. legal markets.”

Behold the empire that is Willie. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his storied past, his remarkable present and his incredibly ambitious future.

He’s more than just a man. He’s more than just music. He’s a cultural institution.

Happy birthday to a true legend.

Willie’s Roadhouse celebrating Willie Nelson’s birthday with Paula Nelson and Dallas Wayne

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015


 Willie Nelson’s 82nd birthday is either April 29 or 30 (he was born at midnight) so we’ll be celebrating for two days straight, with his daughter Paula Nelson co-hosting with Dallas on Wednesday 4/29 from noon- 6 pm ET from the SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse studios on Willie Nelson Blvd. in Austin, TX.

Beginning at 10 pm ET we will be presenting back-to back exclusive concert replays of Willie’s 80th birthday celebration from The Backyard at Bee Cave, TX (featuring special guests Randy Travis and David Allan Coe) and Willie & Family live from the House of Blues Las Vegas this past January to carry us into Thursday morning.

Happy Birthday, Melonie Cannon
