Love Willie Nelson? If so, you are in luck! The country legend and his band comes to New Braunfels this Friday night in support of their new album, My Way. They'll be joined by opening act, Tyler Childers. As a songwriter and performer, Willie Nelson played a vital role in post-rock & roll country music. Now, watch as Nelson brings his unique sound to life at Whitewater Amphitheater on April 12th!
Although he didn't become a star until the mid-'70s, Nelson spent the '60s writing songs that became hits for stars like Ray Price ("Night Life"), Patsy Cline ("Crazy"), Faron Young ("Hello Walls"), and Billy Walker ("Funny How Time Slips Away"), as well as releasing a series of records on Liberty and RCA that earned him a small but devoted cult following.
During the outlaw-country movement in the 1970s, few artists were as respected as Willie Nelson. His renegade aura as well as his reputation as somewhat of a drifter helped bolster his notoriety and cement his place in country music. Though many of his peers in the 1970s have faded into pop culture oblivion, Nelson has managed to stay relevant – constantly reinventing himself and his sound with dabbles into various forms of music including reggae, blues, jazz and lounge.
Hailing from the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky, Tyler Childers is part of a wave of 2010s Americana artists who prize authenticity both in their songs and sound. Sonically, Childers borrows heavily from the weathered, ornery progressive country records of the '70s, a comparison brought into sharp relief on his second album, 2017's Purgatory, which was produced by the acclaimed Americana rocker Sturgill Simpson.
Witness both a living legend and the country star following in his footsteps at Whitewater Amphitheater on Friday, April 12th! General admission tickets to see Willie Nelson & Family and Tyler Childers begin at $41 and may be purchased online at www.whitewaterrocks.com.
