Willie Nelson, the iconic Texan and creative genius behind historic recordings like “Crazy,” “Hello Walls,” “Red Headed Stranger,” and “Stardust” will perform at The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) on Saturday January 19th, 2013. He will be joined by Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real.
In a career that spans six decades, Nelson has more than 200 albums in his catalog and has been in feature films such as “The Electric Horseman,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” and “Stagecoach.” He continues to thrive with ten new album releases in the last five years, two of which received Grammy Nominations, the debut of his first novel, and he remains the headliner of Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985. His most recent release, “Heroes,” showcases new songs and deep country classics with a diverse list of guest artists including Merle Haggard, Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joe Shaver, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, and his sons Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson.
“We are excited to have Willie Nelson perform at SKyPAC, he is a living legend and we look forward to the community’s response to this great opportunity to see him live in Bowling Green,” said Tom Tomlinson, SKyPAC Executive Director.
