Willie Nelson is such a chill dude, he just feels like someone you’d want to hang with. Well, we can assure you that he really is as cool as you think he is. Loretta Lynn can back us up.
“Willie Nelson is what you see on TV,” she told us. “He never changes. I mean he’s just Willie all the time. He’s not a loud person. He’s really laid back, and he’s a good guy.”
And as a member of the SiriusXM family, we’ll take any opportunity to celebrate him, but especially his birthday(s).
And we say birthday(s), because fittingly, Willie Nelson was born in the middle of the night so he celebrates his birthday on both April 29 and April 30. That means we get to party through the night in his honor!
First off at 6 pm ET at Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59), we’re airing a special concert from Willie Nelson & Family, including his sons Lukas and Micah, which was recorded at the recent Luck Reunion held at Willie’s private ranch in Luck, Texas. Next up is Willie’s 83rd birthday episode of Austin Outer Limits with Ray Benson at 8 pm ET. Kicking off day two of the birthday extravaganza, Willie’s daughter Paula Nelson hosts a birthday party in her father’s honor, starting at 11 am ET.
In the meantime, let’s relive some of our favorite moments with Willie at SiriusXM:
