I love seeing Willie Nelson fans flock to the stage when Tunin’ Tom bring Trigger out to his stand before a Willie Nelson & Family Show. After the first bands have played, and folks are heading for drinks and the bathroom and stretching their legs before WN&F come on stage, and then Tom brings out Willie’s famous guitar. Budrock has it lit softly, people see it right away and start heading to the stage to play their respects. Old folks, young folks, mamas with baby’s in their arms come to the stage for pictures and selfies with the famous instrument.
I always have to head up the stage too, say hello to the guitar, take a photo, too. I took this one.
Trigger and Willie worked hard every night playing such great music for us fans. Here’s the set list from the first of three shows at ACL on December 29, 2016.
