Willie Nelson to host new TV series
November 5, 2014

AUSTIN -- In true Willie fashion, the Red Headed Stranger is helping another Austin music television series get on its feet.

Willie Nelson was the first performer on Austin City Limits 40 years ago, and the show is now the longest-running music series in American television history.

Now, local recording studio Arlyn Studios has announced a new television series featuring the music icon himself as host. Little information has been released about the series, which will be titled "Inside Arlyn Studios," but the studio did say on its Facebook page Wednesday that musical guests on the show will include Merle Haggard and Gary Clark Jr. for "intimate studio performances."

 

Nelson's nephew, Freddy Fletcher, is a co-owner of the studio, which opened last year on South Congress Avenue.

Music lovers can register online to get show updates and the chance to win tickets to the performances.

Willie Nelson Reveals Date for 30th Annual Farm Aid Concert
February 9, 2015

Willie Nelson has announced the 2015 date for his 30th annual Farm Aid, which helps support family farmers and raises awareness of the importance of locally grown and organic foods.
Farm Aid is the longest-running benefit concert in America. The 2015 event, an all-day food and music festival, will take place on Sept. 19.
“The first Farm Aid concert featured more than 50 artists on one stage,” Nelson said during the Grammy Foundation Legacy Concert on Feb. 5. “In the 29 years since, hundreds more artists have given their time and talent to support family farmers. This year, we would like to invite even more artists to join us onstage as we celebrate family farm agriculture.”
Nelson performed at the Legacy Concert, and Farm Aid was also honored at the event, earning recognition for its live performances from more than 400 artists over 29 years.
Farm Aid also received a $15,000 preservation grant form the Grammy Foundation Grant Program. The grant will be used to develop a plan to digitize, preserve and archive the legendary Farm Aid performances, according to a press release.
 
More details about 30th anniversary Farm Aid events will be announced soon.
