Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival Tour is making its way across the country. Every stop on the tour produces unforgettable moments from some of the best artists in country music today. Last Friday, Willie brought Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, and Margo Price to Virginia Beach. They took over the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater for the day.
Wille Nelson basically assembled the Avengers of country music with this tour. As a result, fans packed the stadium and witnesses musical magic. However, after a day full of electric sets, Willie brought the whole bill out on stage for one last song.
Just seeing Willie Nelson, Margo Price, Tyler Childers, and Sturgill Simpson onstage at the same time must have been a treat. Then, they performed one of the best live renditions of “Amazing Grace,” in recent memory.
Unfortunately, there’s only a partial video of the performance and the quality isn’t exactly top-tier. However, it’s good enough to show just how amazing Willie Nelson and the rest of the tour sound together. Check it out below.
In the chorus, Willie Nelson calls for everyone to sing along. All of the artists on the stage have their own unique and instantly recognizable voices. However, when they all sang together, they blended to become something truly powerful.
We’ve all heard, “Amazing Grace,” more times than we can count. However, Willie Nelson and the rest of the Outlaw Music Festival crew turned it into a spiritual experience. Just imagine how great it was live and in person.
