    My hero has always been Willie and I continue to wish him and all his fellow performers the best of health and success…All of you who make music are special.

  5. I really would of loved to be there I would of come from Northern Ireland. My late husband got me into really country including yourself, Kris and Merel we went to see him in Belfast at the Kings Hall in the late 70 s I believe. I still play the music in my car to this very day including the Highway Men it brings so many memories back of he songs he played his guitar to and singing. Keep country going.

  6. Willie is a true legend and a great performer. I’ve grew up listening to him and would love to meet him some day.

    I feel my heart saying that you all are fantastic. Thank you for all the beautiful music you gave to me along these years.

  8. I’m sure it was excellent. Saw Willie at state fair in Milwaukee Wisconsin many years ago.

  9. I wish Willie Nelson would come back to Australia soon. I saw him here before and he’s great.
