Willie Nelson Brought a Smokin' Set to AVA Aug. 14

Posted By on Mon, Aug 19, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Willie Nelson played a full set of what his fans wanted to hear at AVA last Wednesday, but not a minute more. Although he could have been days singing through his catalog of favorites, there was no encore. Still, the fans heard plenty to keep them happy. He even made time for covers of other country rebels, and he made it a family affair by duetting with his daughter Amy Lee Nelson for the two set closers. Photographer C.E. Elliott reports some memorable performances:



Stardust

Georgia on My Mind

Blue Skies

All of Me

On the Sunny Side of the Street

Funny How Time Slips Away

Crazy

Night Life

Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground

I'll Be Seeing You

Whiskey River

Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys

Shotgun Willie

On the Road Again

Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die 



Just hold on a little longer and , the way laws are going, everyone will be able to salute you with an appropriate smoke.
