We know Willie is a living country music legend. There are lots of other tidbits we know about ole Willie as well.


What you may not know is that he served in the United States Air Force right after he graduated high school. He was discharged because of a back problem. He raised pigs and was a member of the FFA in high school. He wrote or co-wrote over 330 songs.

Whatever you know or don't about Willie Nelson, one thing is for sure. He is one of the most colorful, talented artists in country music. We are fortunate to have someone who has been in the industry for over 40 years make a stop in south Louisiana.
