It’s a jam-packed year of performing for Austin’s own Willie Nelson, who will be honored at a new tribute show at his Luck, Texas, ranch.

Held by Luck Presents, Nelson’s musical collective based at his ranch, To Willie: A Birthday Celebration will feature performances from Nelson himself and be hosted by Bruce Robison on May 1.

The star-studded lineup for the one-night-only event includes performances from people who hold Nelson dear: Ray Wylie Hubbard, Margo Price, Robert Earl Keen, Vincent Neal Emerson and Nathaniel Rateliff.

Celebrating 89 years on Earth and seven decades in the music industry, each set will be made completely up of Nelson’s repertoire, so you can reminisce on a lifetime of music.

While you’re there grab some exclusive merch, a drink and some grub from the on-site food trucks. You can still grab general admission tickets here.
