Let’s take a time out and wish The Red Headed Stranger, Willie Nelson a happy 90th birthday. Willie celebrated the big day on Saturday, April 29, 2023.
Unbelievable at age 90, Willie is still touring and entertaining fans. In fact, if you check WillieNelson.com, you will find over 40(!!!) concerts between now and mid-September.
The closest Willie is coming to the Fayetteville area will be Friday, September 8, 2023 at Coastal Credit Union Music Park in Raleigh, for the Outlaw Music Festival. Willie also has a Charlotte, show scheduled the next day – you can never have too much Willie.
When you look at what Willie has accomplished musically since his debut in 1962, you cannot help but be blown away. In addition to two movie soundtracks (Honeysuckle Rose & The Electric Horsemen), Willie has recorded over 70 solo studio albums. That’s a remarkable number for a man beloved by multiple generations.
Speaking of 1962, below I have a list of 25 of Willie’s greatest hot songs. Included is the Patsy Cline smash “Crazy.” Willie wrote the song and sang the demo. Patsy Cline put Willie on the map when she recorded it in 1962.
Check out and enjoy this list of Willie Nelson favorites, and join us in wishing him a Happy 90th Birthday.
