Willie Nelson and Family 2019

A local ranch created a brand new amphitheater on the outskirts of town last summer. This year they announced that Willie Nelson and Family would be doing a show, so I grabbed a few of the boys for a show in the first part of May.

Since Willie is still doing tours at 87 years old, I jumped on the chance to see him live. Secretly, I also like that when Christian is older and people ask him about his first concert, he can tell them he saw Willie Nelson when he was 12.

A Night With Willie Nelson

This week I took PopPop and Jack to see Willie Nelson and Family at our local community theater. It was a great night listening to a country music legend. At 82 years old, Willie puts on a fantastic show. He hit all of his classics and our third row seats in this small auditorium was a perfect venue for hearing one of the greats.

My dad (just one year older than Willie) had a great time clapping along! He loved all the old classics, but I personally think he really enjoyed Willie's new ballad: "Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die." Here's a clip of the song from our show below.

I've enjoyed his music over the years and even though I'm not a die-hard fan, it was pretty cool to see a music legend perform. It was even more fun to go to the show knowing that three generations of Fletchers were enjoying the same music.

If you want to hear the full song, this is a video from Jimmy Kimmel about a week before we saw him perform.
