Willie Nelson’s 30th Anniversary Luck Reunion Lineup Announced
Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and it’s packing quite the lineup to celebrate. The official slate of performers includes Jenny Lewis, Lucius, Blitzen Trapper and more — and that’s just at the main “World Headquarters” stage.
The three-venue event takes place March 18 in Luck, Texas, on the Hill Country property where Nelson's Red Headed Stranger was filmed, just outside of Austin. Nelson, of course, is hosting and headlining the festival, which seeks to continue the American roots music narrative. Other performing artists include Jack Ingram, Andrew Combs, Billy Joe Shaver, and many more across the trio of stages: the headquarters stage, the intimate chapel stage and the revival tent.
On the eve of the event, March 17, a Chefs’ Pot Luck dinner fundraiser will be held to benefit Wholesome Wave, which makes fresh, locally grown food available for low-income families. Attendees will enjoy the multi-course meal in addition to intimate performances from Nelson, Aubrie Sellers and Green River Ordinance.
Nelson is releasing e a tribute album to George and Ira Gershwin titled Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin, including a cover of “Summertime,” which he has already shared with fans. The album will include duets with pop icons Sheryl Crow and Cyndi Lauper on some of the Gershwins’ greatest hits. He received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for his lifetime achievements late last year.
