Willie Nelson at the Armadillo World Headquarters show (4/11/72)

On April 11, 1972, Willie Nelson made his first appearance at Armadillo World Headquarters, Austin

 “In Nashville, I was taking advice from the experts — they were telling me what to do.  It wasn’t that they were wrong, it’s just that it was wrong for me.  Someone said one time that a leader is a guy who sees a lot of people going in one direction and then jumps out in front of them.  I don’t know if this is what was happening or not.  I might have seen the young people going for the kind of music that I played, so I went to that audience, to get the energy from those young people and it got the attention of the rest of the world.”

– Willie Nelson
