Willie Fortune explained the idea of developing a Willie Nelson Musical Tribute Show. The real Willie Nelson liked the idea and encouraged Willie to do it. He gave his permission, blessing, encouragement, and endorsement. He personally signed guitars and several of his books and they took some pictures together.
This Tribute Show is one-of-a-kind, capturing the real Willie Nelson exactly, with songs you recognize and love and a show that Willie Nelson HIMSELF respects and encouraged to develop.
The “Willie and Friends” Show has gained popularity everywhere, and fans can’t wait for the show to come back to their area again and again.
