Country music will blend with the night sounds at Silver Springs State Park when Willie Nelson kicks off his 2014 U.S. tour at the Twin Oaks Amphitheater on Saturday, February 1, 2014. Sasha Dobson will open the show at 6:45 p.m. and Willie Nelson and Family will perform at 8:00 p.m. Doors to the concert will be at 6:00 p.m.

The wildlife in the surrounding forest of the spring will be serenaded by Nelson's classic ballads including "To All the Girls...", "Always on My Mind", "On the Road Again", "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys" and an introduction to 30 new songs.
