Allison Krauss and Willie Nelson are on tour together, and tickets are available now! Bluegrass, Americana, classic country music – you’re going to get all of that and more in this wonderful show. There are so many Allison Krauss songs that are hits, but the one many remember is from 2002 “When you Say Nothing at All”. “Whiskey Lullaby” and “Down by the River to Pray” are also well known and most requested – you will probably hear all these and more in her performance. You might not know this, but she was actually born in Illinois and grew up on opera and folk music, but gravitated toward her lifelong love of bluegrass music.
Now what can we say about country music legend Willie Nelson? Toby Keith’s song “Weed with Willie” might some up many people’s thought about it, but his love of music goes far beyond his love for cannibus. A “outlaw” country music staple since the 70’s and ‘Shotgun Willie’, he was actually born during the great depression and raised by his grandparents. He joined his first band at age 10 in 1943, called “Bohemian Polka” – and the rest is history!
