Willie Nelson is most certainly not a stranger to The Backyard, as he’s frequented the venue in the near and distant past, maintaining his status of a local legend here in Austin. This time around, Nelson will be kicking off The Backyard’s 3rd season on April 21st, as well as celebrating his homecoming to Sony Music Entertainment.
Sony Music will release several newly recorded Nelson tunes, and also some archived Nelson hits spanning throughout his entire career, inclusive of his RCA recordings too. Starting this spring, look forward to five brand-new Nelson albums!
So, this show is going to be a Willie extravaganza. Not only will the April 21st show mark the 3rd season of The Backyard and the huge homecoming, but also Nelson’s birthday! Come celebrate with The Backyard, and celebrate Nelson’s extensive music catalog that he’s constructed over the years! Joining Nelson will be his talented daughter Paula Nelson and her band, who’ll be sure to give a fiery performance. There will also be “special guest appearances,” and since it’s going to be such a huge celebration, we can bet the guests will be huge names!
