What a damn group.
This weekend, the great Willie Nelson celebrated his milestone 90th birthday with an incredible two-day concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.
And there were some phenomenal performances from George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton and many, many more, but the closing medley was also an easy highlight of the weekend.
I mean, you know they had to do it big to close out Saturday night, and that they did, as a massive cast including Billy Strings, Miranda, Chris, Kris Kristofferson, Willie’s sons Lukas and Micah, Bobby Weir, Roseanne Cash, Charley Crockett and plenty more you can see in the video below gathered on stage and sang an epic medley of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” “I’ll Fly Away” and “It’s Hard to be Humble.”
Those three tunes have become staples of the red headed stranger’s live shows, but the group also sang a very special rendition of “Happy Birthday,” in honor of the birthday boy, and Willie poignantly noted:
“Happy birthday to me!”
Here’s to 90 more years, Willie:
