This year, Willie Nelson will be 80 and his Fourth of July Picnic will be 40. The Fort Worth Stockyards “North Forty” field will be the site of the highly-anticipated annual all-day outdoor concert on Independence Day 2013.
Returning to help Willie celebrate the 40th annual picnic will be such stars as Leon Russell, Kris Kristofferson, David Allan Coe, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Ray Price. In addition, Academy Award and Grammy winner Ryan Bingham and rising star Justin Moore are scheduled to perform. Willie will be joined by his family – son Lukas and daughters Paula Nelson and Amy Nelson. More entertainers will be announced in coming weeks.
Two stages will provide non-stop entertainment from noon until night. Special areas including a VIP Tent and Sky Box will add to the concert-going experience and provide guests with a place to stay cool. Tickets range from $35-$250 on sale at www.billybobstexas.com or by calling 817-624-7117.
