Willie Nelson is a country music artist from Abbott, Texas. At 80 years of age, he is perhaps the oldest active performers of this genre. Although he began his career in 1956, he became particularly famous in the 1970s. His albums of the time brought him critical acclaim. For example, "Shotgun Willie", his 1973 work introduced him to the charts as a talented and able artist.
The follow up, "Red Headed Stranger" was the album that propelled him to global success and by the time his 1978 record, "Stardust" came out, he had already become one of the most known artists in the world. At the time, he was the face of the genre that was quickly gaining fame—"outlaw country". This genre was something of a movement started by a group of country artists who were tired of the restrictions and the conservatism that came with the Nashville sound.
Nelson’s signature sound is in fact a blend of many different acquired tastes. He uses his jazz influences for some of the smoother tunes and his knowledge of the blues for some of the slower tracks. His songs often focus on politically charged subject matters. His overall sound is soothing to the ears; something the audience can enjoy and have a good time with.
Nelson has also worked as an actor and is an environmental activist as well. Willie Nelson Wheeling WV tickets can be found online for those who want to enjoy his brand of music.
