A statue of the red headed stranger, Willie Nelson, will be unveiled in , where else, Austin. The unveiling , not surprising, is this Friday, April 20th, at 4:20pm. There is a reason for the time and date.
One of the most played songs in country music is "Crazy", written and originally sung by Willie Nelson. But it is Patsy Cline's version that most know. In an interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal, Willie says Patsy's husband, Charlie Dick first asked about the song in 1962 in Tootsie's Orchid Lounge.
On this day in 1992 Willie Nelson staged his fifth Farm Aid Concert in Irving, Texas and 40,000 fans showed up. Farm Aid was put together to help the American farmer keep his land. The first Farm Aid Concert was in 1985, when a lot of farmers in the nation were losing their land. Willie stepped up to help out along with friends John Mellenkamp and Neil Young.
On "two for Tuesday's" not only do I try to feature well known duos or duets, but also artists from different music genres that get together to make music. On this "two for Tuesday" is a Texas legend and another Texan by way of Brooklyn. Willie Nelson and Norah Jones.
On this "Thirsty Thursday" is a song that seem more of a toast to an accomplishment than anything else. "Beer For My Horses" is a song written by Toby Keith. It's all about the good guys getting the bad guys and celebrating that justice as been served.
Gary Allan professes to being a renegade in the music business. But there are several other rebels out there who lasted a long time and gained respect from their public because of their unconventional ways. One of those success stories is Willie Nelson.
For the past 25 years the legendary Willie Nelson has hosted the Farm Aid concert, drawing attention to family farmers and their economic struggles. The first one in 1985, featured John Mellencamp and Neil Young. The 26th is set to be held near Kansas City, Kansas on August 13. To honor Willie to his work with Farm Aid , he's being inducted into the National Agricultural Hall of Fame.
