Willie - Red Rocks

Rode the Chop up to Red Rocks Sunday night for Willie Nelson, Ryan Bingham, and Willie's son Lukas. Great show on a cool, mountain night. Red Rocks is amazing. If you've never been there and make it to the Denver area, hit this venue up. No venue I've ever been to compares to this place. I could go to the shittiest act at Red Rocks and still have a good time - the place is one of a kind...

Willie's son Lukas. I saw the both of them at Coachella over 3 years ago and his kid ripped the guitar then - he's even better now. Has more of a blues-rock style to him, but the kid is still country in a lot of ways that he plays

Willie took a little while getting going on the first song, Whiskey River, but he was pretty damn impressive the rest of the show. How a guy that old still gets down like that I don't know.. drugs I guess?
