Happy Birthday Willie Nelson!!

Last month I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Willie Nelson. Not only did I get to photograph him, but also The 4th & Goal Gala that he was playing at that evening. Their goal was to help raise money for Darrell K Royal’s Alzheimer’s Research Fund at Austin City Limits Moody Theater in Austin, Texas. Such a scary disease, but a very cool event. Two air gymnasts kicked off the evening, and lots of University of Texas Band and Football Alumni made an appearance, as well as lots of other important folks! It was such a moving and emotional event, as there were SO many folks there to celebrate the life of Coach Royal, and raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness. And my goodness, did they raise some money!! Seeing how many people’s lives he touched in such a positive way was just incredible. I’m beyond grateful that I was given the opportunity to capture so many wonderful moments honoring “Coach”, as well as take lots of cool photos of Willie Nelson. He put on such a great show, and even his brother and sister were there to play with him. Some seriously raw emotion, and SO many great hits! His fans love him, and he loves for his fans to sing along with him! Since it happens to be Willie’s birthday today, I thought this was the perfect blog post. Not only did he play and help raise money for The 4th & Goal Gala back in March, but he also had an 80th Birthday Party Bash this past Sunday night to raise money for the victims in West, Texas. I would say that it’s clear that Willie is a pretty incredible (and talented) individual. I hope Willie has ONE HELLOFA BIRTHDAY today, and that everyone jams out to their favorite Willie tunes in honor of his 80 years of awesomeness!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIE NELSON!!!!
