Willie Nelson and Family
Wichita’s Orpheum Theatre, an SMG-managed facility, is thrilled to announce that country legend, Willie Nelson and Family, will perform at 8 p.m. on Mar. 5.
The seven-time Grammy Award winner and Texas singer-songwriter, Willie Nelson, has earned a permanent position in pop music’s pantheon with unforgettable songs that combine the sophistication of Tin Pan Alley with the rough-and-tumble grit and emotional honesty of country music. His six-decade-spanning catalog includes more than 60 studio albums in addition to live recordings, soundtracks, collaborations with other artists and more. A songwriter of rare and precise elegance, Willie brought the worlds of pop and country together on the radio in the early 1960s penning evergreen classics like “Crazy” (Patsy Cline), “Hello Walls” (Faron Young), “Funny How Time Slips Away” (Billy Walker), “Night Life” (Ray Price) and others. By the mid-1970s, Willie Nelson had become an indelible superstar in his own right, as prime mover of a revolutionary and thriving outlaw country music scene.
Nelson’s latest recording, To All the Girls… was released in October of this year. Recorded mainly in Nashville, the album is a collection of newly recorded duets between Willie Nelson and a dream list of contemporary pop-country women singers, such as Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Rosanne Cash, and Emmylou Harris, to name a few. To All The Girls... celebrates Willie's 80th birthday year with a selection of classic songs from America's country, pop and gospel repertoire and more.
