Willie Nelson & Family announce two CMA Theater shows

Shows are May 1st and 2nd at Country Music Hall of Fame

Country Music Hall of Fame member Willie Nelson will bring his Willie Nelson & Family Tour to the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum for two shows this May. The shows will be Friday, May 1st and Saturday, May 2nd at 8 pm at the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Downtown Nashville.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 6th at 10 am CST via cmatheater.com. Tickets range from $75 to $500 (plus fees).

With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Crazy,” “Red Headed Stranger” and “Stardust.” Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force.

Nelson is prominently featured in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s continuing exhibition Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s. The exhibition looks at the relationship between Austin, Texas, and Nashville during the 1970s, an era of freewheeling cultural and artistic exchange that skirted the status quo and changed country music. The exhibition opened in May 2018 and continues through February 14, 2021.

In April 2020, Nelson’s next set of 11 newly recorded songs will release on his album First Rose of Spring – an atmospheric soulful showcase of beautifully written songs and poignant performances. These new songs and performances add to his classic catalog, and find Nelson rolling at a creative peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road, which he still travels along performing for fans.
