(Big thanks to KUT/KUTX superfan and frequent contributor Ann Leifeste for planting the seed last year.)

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 second year. We’ll kick the party off Saturday morning April 28th at 6 a.m. with a weekend filled with classic and rare Willie tunes as well as the red-headed stranger in his own words, plus our award-winning documentary Amazing Grace: The Story of Willie Nelson.

Also, be listening for your chance, hourly, to win tickets to Willie’s 4th of July Picnic at the Austin 360 Amphitheater.
