Austin is the music town that it is mostly because of one man: Willie Nelson. We wouldn’t be able to bring you the Austin music experience without Willie.

Join KUTX as we celebrate his birthday with Willie Weekend, now in its third year. We’ll kick the party off Saturday morning April 27th at 6 a.m. with a weekend filled with classic and rare Willie tunes. Also, be listening for your chance, hourly, to win tickets to Willie’s 4th of July Picnic at the Austin 360 Amphitheater.
