Iconic Texas singer-songwriter Willie Nelson will entertain Starlight Theatre audiences on October 4, 2017, with selections from his six-decade career and 200-plus albums. 

The creative genius behind the historic recordings of Crazy, Red Headed Stranger and Stardust, Nelson has earned nearly every conceivable award as a musician while also amassing reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. He continues to be a relevant, progressive force in both music and culture.  

During the past five years alone, Nelson has released 10 new albums, landed a book on The New York Times’ Best Sellers list, again headlined Farm Aid (an event he co-founded in 1985), headlined the ongoing Luck Reunion Food and Music Festival at his ranch in Luck, Texas, during SXSW, graced the cover of Rolling Stone, and even earned his fifth-degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul.

“It’s A Long Story: My Life,” Nelson’s unvarnished and complete story of his life, hit bookshelves in May 2015 and debuted at No. 5 on The New York Times’ Best Sellers list. One month later, his Django And Jimmie studio album with Merle Haggard debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Album chart and No. 7 on Billboard‘s Top 200. Then, in November 2015, the Library of Congress honored Nelson with its Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, making him the first country artist to receive the distinguished award.

As a follow-up to the award, Nelson in February 2016 released Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin. His collection of 11 newly recorded Gershwin classics debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Current Jazz and Top Traditional Jazz charts.
