Willie Nelson Hopes to Resume Touring After Pandemic
At 87 years young, Willie Nelson is ready to be on the road again. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic Nelson, like so many other musicians, has been unable to safely share live performances with their fans.
“Well, it’s been crazy,” Nelson previously said. “It’s the longest time off the road that I can think of, we’ve ever had to go through before. We’ve always been able to play to some audience somewhere.”
But, the country music legend is hopeful live music will return.
“I know it’ll come back,” he said. “It may be a while, it may be next year sometime. But this will pass and we’ll get back to our normal thing.”
