Katie goes to Sirius/XM Radio’s “Town Hall With Willie Nelson”

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Katie Meghan was one of the lucky winners who got to attend Sirius/XM Radio’s Town Hall With Willie Nelson last week. Actually, it was her mom who entered and won Sirius/XM’s contest, when she heard the contest advertised on Willie’s Roadhouse. She got a congratulations e-mail from Sirius/XM, and her plus one was her lucky daughter Katie.  Here’ I’ll let Katie tell her story:

“There were 15 contest winners at the Town Hall, but there were 30 of us all together, because each winner was allowed to bring a guest. Only the actual contest winners were allowed in the “fish bowl,” where they recorded the show’s sound. The 15 guests were right outside of the fish bowl looking in.

Besides the guests, Willie, Micah, and host Johnny Knoxville were inside the fish bowl. Annie, David Anderson, Mark Rothbaum, and the man who wrote the song, “Cowboys are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other” were also present.

I’d say I was there for a couple hours. The show started slightly late, but it went really smoothly, otherwise. We went early to check in, and stayed later, to pose with Willie for professional photographs (which I’m not even in possession of, yet).

When the winners were notified via email, they were told to submit 3 questions for Willie and told they would be asking him on the show. You weren’t told which of your questions was chosen until you arrived in the studio! Luckily, they chose the question I wanted to ask him! :) Since my mom is technically the subscriber, she should have been in the fish bowl, but (being the wonderful woman she is) requested that I (her guest) be the one to ask Willie the question. They, as you can tell, agreed. As far as I know, there were no guidelines/restrictions for the questions.

Willie was told to basically come in and start. During the broadcast, there were pauses for ads, songs, etc. There was no arrangements, in particular, set up for people to meet Willie, but everyone took it upon themselves to ask Willie follow-up questions, and for autographs during the show’s pauses. At each of these times, the microphones were turned off, and only those in the fish bowl could hear what was taking place. I didn’t ask Willie follow-up questions, or to sign anything, but I did sing along when the songs played!

I actually had no idea we were getting professional pictures taken with Willie, so it took me by surprise! The photos were taken after the Town Hall, but it was very rushed! Willie posed individeually with each winner and their guest for a photo.

It was such a wonderful experience, and I’m so grateful to have gone! Even after 18 years, I still get all giddy to see Willie! The other guests fell in love with Willie. Smiles from ear to ear! Also, I know Johnny Knoxville is known for his “Jackass” TV Show), but he was super nice, and did a great job hosting! He even recorded a short message for a family member of one of the guests!

Attached is a picture collage that I made for instagram (iphone picture app), and a picture of me holding Micah’s drawing that he discusses during the show! Let me know me know if they don’t come through, I will resend them! And if there’s anything else you want to know, I’ll happily answer that as well!”

Willie Nelson on SiriusXM Town Hall in NYC (11/21/2012)

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Willie Nelson, the 79-year-old country icon, Red Headed Stranger, and friend of the reefer, cracked jokes and shared tales from the road yesterday at a SiriusXM Town Hall in Manhattan.

Hosted by Johnny Knoxville — yes, that Johnny Knoxville — the event offered a few lucky subscribers the chance to ask questions of the legendary performer in an intimate setting.

It was all geared toward promoting Nelson’s new book Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings from the Road, which hit stores last week. Nelson’s son Micah, who provided all of the book’s illustrations, joined his father and Knoxville on stage.

Knoxville introduced Nelson as the “greatest living songwriter, and a pretty good bullsh—er,” claims which are not wholly unfounded. Nelson has left a titanic mark on country music — he’s sold more than 40 million albums in the U.S. alone — and he spins a pretty good yarn, bullsh– or not.

Nelson is graced with the gift of storytelling particular to country & western performers. Every tale told in his weathered baritone, whether about trying to raise hogs and chickens in Nashville or getting his guitar signed by superstar Leon Russell, came off with the paternal, homespun ease of a granddad at the kitchen table. He started one anecdote, “Johnny Bush and I were building an electric fence during a rainstorm…” sneaking a wily grin while recalling their misadventure. You got the sense that Nelson was chummy with just about everyone in the history of the business, and has gotten into some good ol’ fashioned trouble with most of them.

In fact Nelson seemed eager to brush off the praise being heaped on him in favor of highlighting the work of his peers. “Leon Russell was the best entertainer I’d ever seen,” he said. “He was the first guy I saw who threw his hat into the audience. So I stole that from him right off.” When a fan asked who he thought should win future Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Awards (Nelson himself received the inaugural honorthis year), he suggested 92-year-old Little Jimmy Dickens and 86-year-old Ray Price. Before he left, he also made sure to mention his friend,composer and musician Ned Sublette, who had stood quietly in the back of the room during the Q&A; Sublette appeared genuinely moved by the nod.

And as if we needed any further proof that Willie Nelson is just a down-home good ol’ boy who happened to strike it big, he cited his family and his children as his greatest accomplishments (even if he has been married four times). Nelson’s a bona fide star, yet he still puts family first and shrugs off the trappings of the industry (“Nashville is a store where you go to sell your stuff”) — ten-gallon hats off to you, sir.

The SiriusXM Town Hall with Willie Nelson will broadcast on Willie’s Roadhouse and Outlaw Country throughout the week.

Willie Nelson and Johnny Knoxville

Johnny Knoxville was the perfect host for Sirius/XM’s Town Hall With Willie Nelson yesterday.  He’s such a Willie Nelson fan, he was tongue-tied, and he is so cute and such a consumate entertainer, everybody loves him.  I listened on the radio at work, like most everyone did except the lucky few (I think they said 15,  but must have been more) who got to be in the NYC audience,  made up of  lucky Sirius/XM subscribers from the area who won a contest to attend  and ask Willie Nelson questions. 

It sounded like they were reading questions prepared in advance and handed out in advance, but I may be wrong.    (But, I was at work, and distracted by what I was supposed to be working on.  I am going to catch a re-broadcast!)  The questions were good, maybe  better than  letting us fans ramble on about how much we  love him and would he mind listening to a song our uncle wrote.  I know it’s hard to blame us, when you get that chance to  talk with Willie Nelson, you can’t control yourself, even if you know better.   But the questions were all good, thoughtful, and really let us get to learn more about Willie Nelson.   Johnny Knoxville was the professional, kept things moving along with good humor, played some Willie Nelson music, asked questions about Willie’s new album, new book, recordings he is working on, old albums — great questions. 

Thanks, Sirius/XM, for continued coverage and showcasing of Willie Nelson, with such love and respect.  We fans are grateful!
