Last night, Friday the 16th, Willie Nelson started another sold out 5 night run at the Fillmore. BMI  honored this man at its 55th Country Music Awards in November of 2007.

I think Wikipedia sums it up best : “Willie Nelson is widely recognized as an American icon. His distinctive music and other social and political activities sometimes take a backseat to his pop-culture public image (firmly grounded in the acknowledged reality of his life) – that of an elderly, lifelong marijuana-smoking, tax-evading, biodiesel-burning, old-school cowboy-hippie troubadour.”

Willie has been playing in a band professionally since he was 10 years old. When he was a teen-ager he joined a Western swing band. He has literally played with hundreds of well known fellow musicians over the years and even had his times on the big screen.

Willie’s son, Lukas, on the right, opened for his dad with his current project The Promise of the Real

the bandana soon got hurled into the crowd.
