Over the last 50 years, the legendary Willie Nelson has continued to be an enduring and compelling presence in music. The troubadour mixes elements of folk, blues, classic country, western swing, and a little gospel during his versatile SOUNDSTAGE set. Displaying a close connection with the audience, Nelson and his eight-piece band (featuring a banjo, mandolin, fiddle, steel guitar, and more) gather round the stage to highlight songs from Nelson’s first-ever bluegrass album, produced in collaboration with T-Bone Burnett. Tipping his hat to the genre, Nelson puts his stamp on standards like Bob Wills’ "Trouble in Mind." Other selections include "Whiskey River," "Drinking Champagne" and "Dark as a Dungeon."
