Willie Nelson Live in Miami Tonight!

The Redheaded Stranger 
By Paul Leone
There was a time when country music songs were about being a cowboy, drinking whiskey, and killing your wife — and times were good. Nowadays you find nary a song about wife-killing, and half the acts, with their popped collars and greasy hair, looked like primped-up city boys. It’s enough to make Hank Williams roll over in his grave. Then there’s Willie Nelson. At 73, country music’s elder statesman is a lot like your grandpa — assuming Gramps smokes a bunch of dope, and used to kick it with Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. Willie’s still an old-school, long-haired, country music pseudo-hippie, and more importantly the traveling troubadour is still out on the road, where he belongs. Expect some outlaw country at its finest when Willie performs at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Knight Concert Hall (1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami). Tickets cost $45-$65. Call 305-949-6722, or visit www.carnivalcenter.org.
