Willie Nelson played to a group of hard-core fans Saturday night at Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta, Georgia. On one of the worst weather days of the year in Atlanta when more than 3 inches of rain fell during the day and into the evening many of those who purchased tickets chose not to brave the downpour and see the country legend in action.

It really was an ugly weather evening at the open-air amphitheater with torrential rain pouring all evening long. Those that did brave the weather were rewarded with an evening of classic country songs by one of country music’s giants.

From the opening refrains of “Happy Birthday to me” celebrating his 80th birthday on April 30th to “Whiskey River” and beyond, Willie Nelson delivered a great concert for those who came. No doubt they went home soaked but there is also no doubt they went home happy in the knowledge they has seen a country legend deliver another great performance.
