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.

Our hats also go off to the sweet lady at a concert recently who handed our security guys her Willie and Eggs project to give to Willie. She took two eggs, blew them out and turned them into her favorite artist, Willie Nelson.

And thank you to the artist Rob Colabella of North Carolina for his outstanding portrait of Willie on wood. He sent this as a gift, and after the building construction is all over, it will proudly hang at  Willie’s World Headquarters at Luck, Texas.

It’s A Small World

Last month it was literally old home week for our driver Tony Sizemore as he was reunited with an old friend from high school. They both graduated from a little school in Holton, Indiana and probably wouldn’t have ever crossed paths again if not for the Viet Nam War.
