You Are Invited To Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic

Willy Nelson's 4th of July Picnic

On Saturday, July 4th, Willie Nelson is putting on his annual 4th of July Picnic.  This annaul event has been hosted by Willie since 1973 and is a concert and celebration that so many fans look forward to.

On July 4th, starting at 3:30 pm Central Time, fans will be able to enjoy interviews with characters from the Picnic’s past, and see new, live performances from their favorite artists.  Just remember, Central Time,  one more detail for us East Coast Fans have to remember.

This year, Luck Productions was set to host the 47th annual event. We feel grateful that because of the current situation, the picnic has been brought to us and the show will go on.  Willie will be performing alongside his band from his nearby recording facility, Pedernales Studios. In addition to Willie, performers will include the likes of Sheryl Crow, Ziggy Marley, Margo Price, Steve Earle, and Kurt Vile.
