Willie Nelson will soon be on the road again, this time with Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas. Country Weekly reported on February 10 that the legendary singer will take the stage with Alison Krauss for the first time this summer. The tour begins May 1 and will cover a wide range of cities across the US before it wraps up on July 18. Murray, Kentucky will get the first glimpse of the summer tour. Coming along for the ride in select cities will be The Devil Makes Three, Kacey Musgraves, Jason Isbell and The Wild Feathers.
Willie Nelson recently delighted fans with his performance on the GRAMMYs alongside Blake Shelton and other respected artists, Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson. The artists sang “Highwayman”, “Okie From Muskogee”, and “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.”
Willie Nelson will undoubtedly bring beloved classic tunes such as these to his summer tour. Willie Nelson is currently promoting his album “To All the Girls...”, a project that features duets with Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Wynonna Judd, Rosanne Cash and many other famous female singers. Alison Krauss appears on the album singing “No Mas Amor.” Though it has yet to be announced, it’s possible that Alison Krauss or Kacey Musgraves could stand in for some of Willie’s famous duets during the tour.
