Country Music Hall of Famer Willie Nelson pre-partied for his 80th birthday in Nashville last Thursday, taping an all-star episode of CMT Crossroads: Willie Nelson and Friends From Third Man Records.
The private concert taping included collaborations with Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Norah Jones, Ashley Monroe, Leon Russell and Neil Young. Jack White hosted the special, and it’s set to air in late June.
Willie’s new album, Let’s Face the Music and Dance, is out now. The birthday festivities continue Sunday with his annual Birthday Concert in Austin, Texas. Proceeds from the event will benefit the West Volunteer Fire Department in the wake of the devastating explosion at the West Fertilizer Company Plant in West, Texas.
Willie turns 80 next Tuesday, April 30th.
