Happy 81st Birthday, Willie Nelson! Hear the Party Live from Texas

April 28, 2014

Airing Tuesday, 4/29 at 10 pm ET on Willie’s Roadhouse, Ch. 56
Replaying Saturday, 5/3 at 12 pm ET and Sunday, 5/3 at 7 pm ET

There is a great debate about the date of Willie Nelson’s birth.

Arriving in Abbott, Texas, somewhere around the midnight hour, Willie has always claimed April 29, but his official birth certificate designates the 30th.

Regardless, if anyone deserves a two-day birthday bash it’s Willie, and he’ll be celebrating his 81st by doing what he loves most: making music with his friends and family, live on stage at The Backyard in Bee Cave, TX. SiriusXM listeners can join the party on his exclusive channel, Willie’s Roadhouse, which will be carrying this homecoming concert live for the third consecutive year on Tuesday, 4/29 at 10 pm ET.

Of course Willie is no stranger to our Outlaw Country channel, which broadcast his recent unannounced performance at the 3rd annual Heartbreaker Banquet. Willie’s Roadhouse and Outlaw Country host Dallas Wayne caught up with the “Red Headed Stranger” at his World Headquarters, and talked about the origin of his private Old West town affectionately known as Luck, TX, where the event was held during last month’s SXSW Music Festival.
