Every year July 4th rolls around and every year Willie helps us celebrate. If feels like it's been happening that way for ages. The tradition kicked off in 1973 with shaky legs. (The concert rumored to be an all out disaster.) Luckily in '74 Willie got it right. Word has it someone dubbed the infamous picnic “The Great Willie Nelson Commando Hoo-Ha and Texas Brain Fry.” Seems about right. Beer. Boobs. Outsider country. Weed. Fire (yep, some out of hand fireworks lit a few cars on fire). So crack a cold one, spark it up and pretend you're celebrating America's birthday with Willie this year. That's what I'm going to do.
