Willie Nelson and Family, Odyssey Arena, Belfast, Ireland (1/21/2007)

Country music singer-songwriter Willie Nelson performs at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast. Willie Nelson found fame in the mid-Seventies, but had already written hits for many other artists like Patsy Cline during the Sixties. After adopting his folky redneck image, his 1975 crossover album The Red Headed Stranger was a huge success, helped by the hit single Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain. Along with Waylon Jennings he went on to enjoy considerable success over the next few years as the outlaw country sound took off.
