The Owensboro Convention Center has announced that country music legend, American icon Willie Nelson is coming to town.

Willie Nelson & Family Live in Concert is set for April 17th at 7:30PM.

It's great to have this superstar back in town. I haven't seen Willie since a performance at the Executive Inn at LEAST 15 years ago.

And I remember that the Willie shows were always too big for the Showroom Lounge so the Exec would have to put Willie in one of those great big convention rooms.

And I got to shake his hand.

It's one of the coolest things ever.

Tickets are $59, $79, and $120 and will go on sale this Friday, January 19th at 10AM.

Tickets will be available online at OwensboroTickets.com, at the Owensboro Convention Center box office, or you can charge by phone at 270-297-9932.
