Willie Nelson celebrates his 89th Birthday & ‘A Beautiful Time’ album release on SiriusXM

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson turns 89 on April 29 and 30 (he was born in the middle of the night, so of course, he has two birthdays!), and we’re throwing a three-day party on his exclusive channel, Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59), including a live broadcast from his private ranch in Luck, TX.

Willie’s three-day birthday weekend kicks off on Friday, April 29th with the release of his new album (his 76th solo album and 146th overall), A Beautiful Time, and his daughter Paula Nelson will host a one-hour special that premieres at 6 pm ET and includes conversations and birthday wishes from Nathaniel Rateliff, Robert Earl Keen, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Bruce Robison, along with tracks from the new release.

On Sunday, May 1st at 8pm ET, Luck and The Next Waltz present To Willie: A Birthday Celebration, an all-star tribute concert hosted by Bruce Robison and featuring Nathaniel Rateliff, Sheryl Crow, Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earle, Margo Price and Vincent Neil Emerson, followed by a special performance from the guest of honour himself, Willie Nelson.

Other highlights of the weekend at Willie’s Roadhouse will include special birthday episodes of Ray Benson’s Austin Outer Limits and Sundays with Seely with Jeannie Seely.
