The “Family” Man.
Thursday, Feb. 6, 8 p.m.
How do you summarize the career of a legend like Willie Nelson? Rebel, maverick, hippie, folk hero – Nelson has been embraced with any number of adjectives creative and synonymous with his independent spirit. While some music entertainers readily fold their careers for retirement after the heavy airplay has stopped, Nelson carries on as if the R-word is nonexistent. Whether it’s new material or an album like To All the Girls, a retrospective of duets with female country and folk music artists (including Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Alison Krauss, Sheryl Crowe, Carrie Underwood, Norah Jones and Mavis Staples, to name a few), Nelson is as timeless as it gets. Listen for yourself when Willie Nelson and Family play the Joint at the Hard Rock Tulsa Hotel & Casino, 777 W. Cherokee St., Catoosa. Show is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, and tickets are $50-$60 each.
