Soundstage

Willie Nelson

Season 17, Episode 5 of 13

Over the last 50 years, legendary icon Willie Nelson has continued to be an enduring and compelling presence in music. The troubadour mixes up elements of folk, blues, classic country, western swing and a little gospel during his versatile Soundstage set. Displaying a close connection with the audience, Willie and his-eight piece band (featuring a banjo, mandolin, fiddle, steel guitar and more) gather round the stage to highlight songs from his first-ever bluegrass album, produced in collaboration with T-Bone Burnett. Tipping his hat to the genre, Willie puts his stamp on standards like Bob Wills' "Trouble In Mind." Other selections include "Whiskey River," "Drinking Champagne" and "Dark As A Dungeon."
