The St. Augustine Amphitheatre presents Willie Nelson & Family with special guest Los Lonely Boys on Sunday, February 18, 2018, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Willie Nelson is widely recognized as an American country music legend, but has also been acclaimed for his work as an author, poet, actor, and activist. Nelson has released over 50 studio albums since he got his start in country music in the 1960s. For over five decades Nelson has recorded hit song after hit song, performed across the globe, and has received numerous awards for his music including being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993, received the Kennedy Center Honors in 1998, and many more.
The 1970s saw Nelson’s rise to fame with his three highly acclaimed and popular albums, Shotgun Willie (1973), Red Headed Stranger (1975), and Stardust (1978). Nelson along with artists like Waylon Jennings became a part of the “outlaw country” scene, which was a sub-genre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of Nashville. Willie Nelson has become a household name and the many of his songs are now country music staples including “Funny How Time Slips Away,” “Hello Walls," “Pretty Paper,” and “Crazy.”
