Willie Nelson, Johnny Knoxville Live Q&A on SiriusXM’s “Town Hall With Willie Nelson” (11/20/2012)


Now, this sounds like fun!  Willie Nelson, who is on a short break from his never-ending tour schedule, but hasn’t spent anytime resting, as far as I can tell, will take part in a live Q & A in the Sirius/XM Radio studio in New York City, on Tuesday, November 20th.  The audience will be lucky winners of a contest that Sirius/XM Radio has been offering on their website to local listeners.

 What a schedule he keeps!  While most musicians take a break from the road to go fishing or do nothing, Willie Nelson doesn’t stop.  I think he’s almost busier when he’s not on the road.   He has been promoting his new book, and will attend a book signing today in Austin, (SOLD OUT), and another book-signing in New York City at Barnes and Noble on 19th.   Then, the Town Hall on Sirius/XM on the 20th.    Lucky for us fans that Willie is out there and we get to hear him play music, have him sign his new book, hear him answer questions from fans.   Thank you, Willie, for all the ways you continue to connect with your fans.
