Dozens Of Stars Pay Tribute To Willie Nelson


A star-studded lineup paid tribute to legendary country singer Willie Nelson over the weekend.

Two dozen artists played in the four-hour long all-star concert Willie: Life & Songs of An American Outlaw Saturday night.

Speaking at the event held at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Emmylou Harris said, "Are we not all blessed to be living in the time of Willie?"

Nelson shared the stage to perform with the likes of George Strait, Sheryl Crow, and Eric Church.

The music community gave a fitting finale to the music night with a medley of "On the Road Again" and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken".

The concert, produced by Blackbird Presents, will be aired as a major broadcast special on A&E sometime this year.

Nelson will be honored with the Recording Academy's Producers and Engineers Wing Award next month.
