He said, “I’m so glad I’ll get to ‘sing one with Willie’ and I can’t think of a better place to do it than Austin, Texas. Willie is an incredible musician and an even better person, so I know this will be a great night.”

Wishing Willie a Happy early Birthday and we can’t wait to listen to his new album! At almost 89 years old, it doesn’t seem like he’s slowing down anytime soon and fans are certainly happy about that. He also continues to be an advocate for marijuana use.
