In 1980, Willie Nelson laid bare the essence of his life on radio airwaves around the world. “On the road again. Just can’t wait to get on the road again. The life I love is making music with my friends, And I can’t wait to get on the road again.” More than three decades after the release of his No. 1 Billboard country single, fans realize just how committed he was to the life of a traveling musician. Unfazed by all the detours country music has taken since his debut, Nelson still tours extensively, braids his silver locks, plays that beat-up guitar and ties it all together with his favorite red, white and blue guitar strap. Nelson has stayed the course. He and a few friends head for the Eufaula Cove Amphitheatre, Eufaula, on July 2. Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown features Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice and many others. For details go to www.dcfconcerts.com.
