We’re bringing the 4th of July Picnic back this year…in a new way. We can’t be together in person but we can still be together apart. This Picnic will be presented virtually. We’ll be bringing it straight to you, with some of our favorite returning acts and a few new ones, too. Join us from home on the 4th on www.williepicnic.com and www.luck.stream for a new Picnic experience. Tickets go on sale on June 29. Hope to see ya there.

From legendary Grammy award-winning country singer Willie Nelson and his sister, Family band member Bobbie Nelson, comes ME AND SISTER BOBBIE: TRUE TALES OF THE FAMILY BAND, a heartfelt memoir of the lifelong bond between Willie and his only sibling Bobbie, who tells her own incredible story here for the first time. After being abandoned by their parents as very young children and becoming each other’s abiding relationship for over eight decades, this dual memoir, told in alternating chapters, weaves together Willie and Bobbie’s journeys as they experienced them both side-by-side and apart, with powerful, emotional never-before-told recollections from their personal lives and careers. Through dizzying highs and traumatic lows, ME AND SISTER BOBBIE shows that nobody knows you like your family. ME AND SISTER BOBBIE was edited by Executive Editor Ben Greenberg and will be published on September 15, 2020 as a Random House Hardcover.

Additionally, a picture book by Willie and Bobbie Nelson, written with Chris Barton, tentatively titled Sister, Brother, Family: Our Childhood in Music, to be edited by Frances Gilbert, Editor-in-Chief of Doubleday Books for Young Readers, will be published in Fall 2021.

Mr. Mister

Our bodyguard, Mr. Mister,  had a run in with the local police in Cincinnati, Ohio before the concert. Luckily no formal charges were filed and after a brief period of questioning he was free to continue on with the rest of the tour. Hey man, he was just doing his job!

God Bless our American Veterans

Dad recently did a PSA for the homeless veterans in America. Production crews set up cameras on the bus before the concert, and the Redheaded Stranger asked that everyone open their hearts to our many homeless vets. A highly decorated Viet Nam veteran, who was also a fan, had given Dad this well worn, heavy medal hat to wear in honor of all those who have served our country with honor and pride. God Bless our American veterans and please support them when you can. They have already supported you.

Letters to Willie

Well I have no idea if the is the right place to be sending this, as it was an e-mail address passed on by a stranger on FB.
But to make a long story short, a few months ago I commissioned a portrait for gentleman who’s dream it was to have a picture taken with Willie. Suffice to say, he never got the chance and asked me to draw one for him. He had been told for years that he looked like his idol Willie, and he wanted to show everyone they were all crazy! ( I personally thought he looked like Willie too! lol ). 24 hours after a family member of his picked up his portrait, Basil unfortunately passed away :(. Now I don’t personally know Basil well, but from in the short time I got to know him all he could talk about was Willie. So I’m hoping to do him one last honor of knowing Willie got to see this picture, and where ever Basil is now I know he would smiling from ear to ear!

If there is any way you can pass a copy of this picture Willie in anyway, I know you would make one life long Willie fan and his family a great honor.

Here is a link to Basil’s FB page. People still send him Willie updates lol

Thank you Kindly

Kansas City, Missouri

The Starlight Theater in Kansas City was packed with love tonight.  Jason Isbell opened up the hearts of everyone with his beautiful voice, then Alison Krause and Union Station stepped up to the stage and melted even the toughest among us. She sings like a sweet, soft, fragile winged angel.

Speaking of little angels, Tatum Lee and her family drove up from Joplin, Missouri to see the show. The volunteers at the Make a Wish Foundation arranged for Tatum to meet her favorite singer, Willie Nelson, who also signed her guitar backstage after the concert. Tatum must endure painful operations every four months to extend the rods in her back, and music seems to help.  The next operation won’t be too long from now. But this time when she’s recovering and playing her guitar she can look down, see Willie’s signature and remember how many people were involved and what all it took to get it. She can be absolutely sure she is loved by the very best.
