Of course I had to end with Willie Nelson, or just Willie, as we call him in Austin. He didn’t make it in Nashville, so he moved to Austin in the early seventies. Austin quickly adopted him as their own. Just recently, 2nd Street was renamed Willie Nelson Boulevard, and a statue was unveiled before the W hotel. He turned 80 in April of this year.

And while you’re reading that, enjoy his music.

  1. 80 years old…wow! I saw him in concert in the pouring rain a few years ago and he was great.


I would love to know what you think, even about old posts.
