The Wonderful World of Willie Nelson


Photography by Bonnie M. Morét
 
Whether you listen to country music or not, everybody likes Willie Nelson.  That statement echoed true on Friday, Feb. 27, at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, Ga.  The crowd ranged from the very young to the well-seasoned.
 

At the tender age of 81, Willie Nelson is far from slowing down.  In addition to his newly-released album, Band of Brothers, Willie has just signed on to play a role in the upcoming movie, Waiting for the Miracle to Come. He will be playing alongside actress Charlotte Rampling as a retired vaudeville performer.
 

On stage, Willie Nelson was at his best.  He opened with Whiskey River followed by my favorite, Still is Still Moving to Me.  If you have the opportunity, this tour is a must-see!
