Paul,

I love this. You have captured the show and in Part Two the venue exquisitely. You also captured the man. This sentence resonates so well: For the rest of us, our devotion to Willie and what he stands for is painted indelibly on a small cameo in an invisible locket hanging on a delicate chain around our necks.

I can't wait to hear the cover of Sinatra's songs.

The photo of the arena is mind blowing.

Great event and great writing PT. You were obviously inspired! Who doesn’t love Willie.

Fabulous Review. Saw part of the show on Public TV and I couldn't agree with you more.

May Louise, I put "Willie Nelson Tribute on public TV" in search engine Duckduckgo to find it. Much to my surprise, I found a link http://www.pbs.org/gershwin-prize/shows/gershwin-prize-willie-nelson/
I had no idea about the Gershwin Prize Award to Willie in 2015, made me happy that I wrote the last paragraph of my post without ever knowing about that prize or the story about it.

"Look at the range of songs the man’s written and sung. Willie’s sort of a one-man Rogers and Hammerstein or a singer with the range and sensibility of George Gershwin who wears cowboy boots and a red bandana. With his country lyricism, jazz influenced phrasing, and soulful sensibility, Willie doesn’t even fit into the category of Americana. “One of a kind” sounds about right."
