WILLIE NELSON’S 4TH OF JULY PICNIC is designed to provide guests a not-to-be-missed afternoon and evening of exceptional performances by artists from all musical genres, along with some unexpected jam sessions. Although Willie Nelson has not announced his entire picnic line-up, early confirmations include Corey Smith, Whiskey Myers, and Deadman. Past performers include a who’s who of country music and rock. Willie Nelson’s new album “Heros”, will be released in May and features Snoop Dogg, Sheryl Crow, and Kris Kristofferson, along with his sons Micah and Lukas, so you never know who will show up at the picnic!
This year’s setup will again feature the air-conditioned comfort of Billy Bob’s opening to the landscaped beauty of Rodeo Plaza in the Stockyards. Doors will open at 11:30 am with the first artist taking the stage at 12 noon. Tickets go on sale Monday, April 23 at 10 am, and are $35 in advance, $45 day of show, available online at billybobstexas.com and Billy Bob’s Box office 817-624-7117. With the indoor/outdoor format and a limited capacity – Willie’s picnic was a sellout in 2011.
