It’s Willie Nelson’s Birthday

A big happy birthday to Willie. He’s got 80 candles ‘smokin’ on his cake. (the smoke is from the candles!)

Willie was born April 30, 1933 in Fort Worth, Texas. The ‘Great Willie’, as I would like to refer to him as, is celebrating his 80th birthday.

On April 16, Willie came out with a new studio album. It is titled ‘Let’s Face The Music And Dance’  featuring his take on pop, rock, jazz and country classics.

I’ve followed Willie’s fabulous career over my many years in the music radio show business. I remember some of the statements he has made over the years like: ‘There’s only two kinds of music, good music and bad music.’

Willie has given us all good music. Everything from his song writing to his recording and performances.

And speaking of his performances, he is coming to The Corn Palace in Mitchell on May 16th. We want to give Willie a big South Dakota welcome along with the birthday wish.

Willie says he came to Nashville as a young man just trying to sell his songs and he’s been on the road singing them for more than 50 years. He says the younger version of him would ‘probably wonder what’s that old man doing out there and why he never goes home.’
