Willie Nelson and Family Set for Jackson Hall, 4/9
The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis is pleased to announce a new Just Added performance, Willie Nelson and Family, performing in Jackson Hall on April 9, 2014 at 8 p.m.
With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, Willie Nelson is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of Crazy, Red Headed Stranger and Stardust. This iconic Texan has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. Heroes, his first album for Legacy Recordings, showcased new songs and deep country classics. The album spent five weeks at No. 1 on the Americana Radio Chart. Later that year he launched his book, Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die, which landed in the Top 10 on The New York Times best-seller list. A road journal written in his inimitable, homespun voice, the book is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time. In 2013, Willie's albums included April's Let's Face The Music And Dance, an album of deep pop-country repertoire classics performed with transformative patented ease by Nelson and Family, his long-time touring and recording ensemble; and October's To All The Girls... which features 18 duets with music's top female singers including Dolly Parton, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow, Loretta Lynn, Wynonna Judd, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones and Shelby Lynne.
This Just Added performance goes on sale to the public on Tuesday, January 28. Tickets are available at midnight online at mondaviarts.org, or during regular business hours via phone at 866-754-2787 and in person at the Mondavi Center Ticket Office on the UC Davis campus.
