For immediate release: May 18, 2016
Windsor, ON – Don't miss an unforgettable evening at The Colosseum as Willie Nelson & Family are joined with special guest Aaron Lewis on Thursday September 8 at 8pm.
An icon in American popular culture and one of the most successful country music singer-songwriters in history, Willie Nelson’s legendary career has spanned over six decades. With 2,500 songs in his nearly 300-album discography and multiple Grammy’s, American Music Awards, and Country Music Awards under his belt, Nelson’s credentials are remarkable. The notorious country artist has sold more than 40 million records in the United States and is well known as an activist for his contributions to social causes. In 2004, his hit “On the Road Again” was ranked among the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone. In 1961, he wrote “Crazy,” which became a career-changing song for Patsy Cline. Nelson is also known for the memorable version of “Always On My Mind”.
Willie Nelson played a vital role in post-rock & roll country music due to his unique country sound, bringing together jazz, blues, pop, rock, and folk. With the crossover success of Red Headed Stranger and "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," Nelson was a genuine star, as recognizable in pop circles as he was to the country audience.
