  1. I think that’s AWESOME!!! If they could do it as a lead in type interview to those preforming at Austin City Limits, even better. Tons of artists would sign up, I believe, just to hang out with Willie, let alone be able to jam with him. On the flip side there are plenty of actors, human rights and other famous individuals that one would think have plenty of questions FOR Willie as well as he for them.

  2. Hope it is on RFD or a channel we can watch. Keep up the good entertainment. Just saw you on reruns of Dukes of Hazard.

  3. I think Mr Nelson is a success at any thing he tries.. best of luck with your TV series.. know it will be awesome..

Ya never know maybe on my Birthday, 1-11. :-). You would Be A great Host Buddy. Great Story Teller. As we Like too call Good old Boys like you. ! Knock em Dead Willy! This Old Hippy Girl Got Your Back. My Birth name is Sharon Marie Nelson. 1-11-1947. I Sure Hope I Get That Station!

  30. just wanted to say Willie Nelson is an inspiration! Angel flying too close to the ground was me & my husbands wedding song and played that song on his memorial CD when he passed away at 54. Ricky Schultz.. 6/9/59-2/18/14

  31. Guess I said all that in the wrong window. I don’t want to write it all again. You’re my friend on Facebook. I hope you get to read it buddy. I guess were going to proofread it. Lmao!

  51. I was just talking about you doing something this two days ago. I think it will be one show that is watched by millions or even more. Willie Nelson has got to be one of the most well known country music artists of all time. I look forward to watching every show. I want to thank Willie for all those wonderful songs over the years and hope to hear many more.

  52. You are a amazing artist!!! I loved your music since I was little and now I’m almost 50! I’ve seen you twice and it was epic!! One day I hope to shake your hand!

  53. I cant wait to see it. I love Willie and know he’d do great. Merle has been a favorite all my life.

  54. Johnny Youngblood November 7, 2014 at 8:19 PM

    will be waiting for information , when and where to watch. This sounds like fun !

  55. I’d watch Willie quietly watch tv if you put it on air mind you (yelling at the news? lol) But how fantastic it would/will be to hear his take on other amazing musicians!?
