Willie Nelson's Fourth of July Picnic

Monday, July 4, at Billy Bob's Texasin Fort Worth

Aging American icon Willie Nelson really hasn't slowed down. Whether it's the amount of albums he records with any number of musical partners, his still-relentless touring schedule or hell, even his pot-related arrests, the braided shaman from Abbott is a man who loves hitting the road.

Obviously, the road still loves him, too. Thousands still flock to Nelson's shows in all corners of the country.

The only sign of a possible slowdown for the Red-Headed Stranger? His legendary Fourth of July Picnic.

In 2007, Willie disguised a bill with Son Volt and the Old 97's in Washington state as a so-called picnic, while in 2009, he simply slapped the picnic label onto the Austin stop of his ballpark tour with Bob Dylan. He didn't mail it in as badly this year, thankfully.

For this edition, Willie brings his tour through the Fort Worth Stockyards on July 4. While it's basically a spruced-up version of the Country Throwdown package tour bearing his name, he has at least included friends both new (Jamey Johnson) and old (Ray Price) into the mix so that any signs of aging can melt away into the baked dirt of a Lone Star holiday.
