Iconic American country superstar Willie Nelson will be live in concert for one night only on Saturday June 5 in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar. Nelson’s latest album American Classic which is out now has become his most successful album of his career so far reaching number one on the Billboard’s country album chart and racking up more than five million in sales. It earned Nelson a Country Male Vocal Performance Grammy and, most significantly, helped to transform a colourful, middle-aged, cult figure into a mainstream star.
The iconic singer-songwriter who has been labelled the outlaw of the genre will be joined by his family this June in Ireland to perform all his greatest hits spanning a career of some 50 years. During his extensive career Willie Nelson has written hundreds of songs many of which were made famous by other stars, some of his greatest songs include ‘Always On My Mind’, ‘On The Road Again’, and ‘Crazy’.
