Willie Nelson

When singer, songwriter and SiriusXM radio host Paula Nelson mentioned to her friend Bruce Robison that she wanted to record some of her dad’s songs, he invited her — and her dad, Willie — to the Bunker, his all-analog recording studio in Lockhart, Texas, where he wound up producing a pair of father-daughter duets. Robison’s label, The Next Waltz, will release the first one, “Slow Down Old World,” on Feb. 24.

Willie Nelson is a world-renowned musical icon, but in Texas, he’s something more: a beloved native son and benevolent elder who’s brought countless new talents into the family fold — often during the famed Luck Reunions at his ranch outside of Austin.

My first concert was Willie Nelson in January of 1984. I was only eight years old. My mum took me as her date since my dad was sick. We trekked across town to the Universal/Gibson Amphitheatre which was later demolished for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. I remember it being cold and rainy. Regardless of the weather, Angeleno’s were decked out in their country finest. Dark denim, blinged out belts, rhinestone-embellished cowboy hats and Americana regalia filled the theatre.
