Nelson will front a rotating lineup of performers that will be different at each stop. Performers the Cynthia Woods will include Willie Nelson & Family, Whiskey Myers, Flatland Cavalry, Brittney Spencer, Particle Kid, and more to be announced later.
“I can’t wait to be on the road with the amazing group of artists joining us on this year’s Outlaw Music Festival Tour,” said Nelson in a statement. “It is always a great day of music and fun with family, friends and the incredible fans, and even more special this year in celebration of my 90th birthday.”
The tireless singer just released his 99th (!) studio album, I Don't Know a Thing About Love, comprised entirely of songs written by Harlan Howard, who gave Nelson his first job as as songwriter.
