ATLANTA —
Only 20 minutes into his set, Willie Nelson had already rolled through eight songs.

Delivering them with lean musicianship and the occasional mischievous grin, the 83-year-old musician was a model of stamina Friday night as he unfurled crowd favorites “Whiskey Rose,” “Still is Still Moving to Me,” “Beer for My Horses,” “On the Road Again” and “Always on My Mind” practically without pausing for a breath.

Mirroring Nelson in the endurance department was former President Jimmy Carter, who arrived at Chastain Park Amphitheatre a couple of songs into opener Kris Kristofferson’s performance with wife Rosalynn and a handful of casually dressed Secret Service men in tow.

Carter is an avowed Nelson fan, and he and Rosalynn were spotted standing throughout most of the Red Headed Stranger’s set, front row, stage left. When Nelson launched into a concert staple, his rendition of “Georgia on My Mind,” a spotlight caught the Carters smiling and singing along.

    I had tickets for concert but my body had other plans. I had surgery on MAY 3, and another on May 16. After a month stay in the hospital I was able to go home.
    Hoping Willie is coming back to the Atlanta area in the fall or soon after.

  5. So sorry I missed this concert. My sister-in-law Janice and I bought tickets just after the concert was announced well we didn’t make it to Christian Park. I had to have emergency surgery and was in the hospital the whole month of May.
    I am on the mend now and looking everyday for Willie to come back to the Atlanta area.
    Love you Willie

  6. Don’t know if you got my text. I know this is a good one. I’d love to hear you do it. I’ll do it with ya if ya want. I would like to know just how many you’ve written. Hahaha. I’d just about bet you don’t even know. Gotta make it back to Luck
