Willie Nelson filming movie in Bastrop, Texas


When Angels Sing:  A Christmas Story
by Turk Pipkin

From the Inside Flap

When Michael Walker was a child, he’d wished that every day could be Christmas. But that was thirty years ago, before a tragic accident changed his life one Christmas morning.

He still can’t muster any spirit for the holidays–and he doesn’t want to. For him, it will always be a time of pain, a memory of that day. He scowls at his neighbors’ fervent holiday traditions and even at his own children’s joyful anticipation of the season’s celebrations.

But when his young son faces a sadness as profound as his own, Michael is the only one who can save him. It takes nothing short of a miracle to give Michael the courage to make peace with his past and find the hope, joy, and spirit that he lost.

Willie Nelson and Family are not on tour right now, but Willie Nelson has  not been on vacation.  He’s using his time off the road on a movie set in Bastrop, Texas,  filming scenes for the movie “When Angels Sing”, based on the book written by Turk Pipkin.   Also in the movie are Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett and Harry Conick, Jr.  

Author Joe M. O’Connell has posted pictures from the film set at his blog.

    We are tired of the delays on Main St in Bastrop. A few people make a significant amount of money off this while the rest of us are late for work, late getting home from work and generally annoyed with noise, lights, and no parking. Not alot of money is being spent here…they bring in their own catering trucks and crew from austin. Time to go home…we have been patient, we have be kind….you are like that weird cousin that comes for a weekend and a month later is still on your couch. Let’s wrap it up!!!
