Country music icon and 12-time Grammy winner Willie Nelson will bring his decades of hits to Musikfest when he performs on the Wind Creek Steel Stage at 7 p.m. on Aug. 5.
With a six-decade career in music and 200 plus albums, Nelson is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Crazy,” “Red Headed Stranger,” “Stardust” and more.
The iconic Texan has also amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist.
He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force, having delivered more than a dozen new albums in recent years while releasing a Top 10 New York Times’ best-sellers book and being honored by the Library of Congress with its Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
Nelson has earned numerous CMA, Grammy and ACM awards and in 1993 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
In 2019, he released “Ride Me Back Home,” a new studio album that captures a reflective upbeat journey through life, love and time’s inescapable rhythms viewed from his inimitable perspective.
