Y’all, Willie is old. He’s 85. He’s ridden this life hard. He’s played that guitar hard. So it wasn’t a big deal when it took him a song or two to warm up. A bit out of tune and a bit out of breath, the legend stood before us and worked his way into a well rehearsed, but never mundane performance, encouraging the audience to sing along. There was more Bob Dylan-like sing-talking than the Willie warble we know and love. Don’t get me wrong, the show was great but time waits for no one. The crowd didn’t seem to notice, and really, I don’t think Willie does half the time he on the stage. It’s his home and I am so grateful to have been able to enjoy the show one more time. We love you Willie!
