Willie Nelson, the red-headed stranger, is on the road again. Billy Bob's Texas is celebrating return of Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic to Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Stockyards hosted the iconic picnic/music festival back in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
Willie is currently on the Country Throwdown Tour 2011 which will wrap up with the always-anticipated Willie Nelson's annual 4th of July Picnic. The long-standing Texas tradition will break new ground as it will be held outside and inside of the famed Billy Bob's Texas. Headliners at Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic & Throwdown will perform on the venue's main stage outside with many artists taking the stage indoors for a full complement of multi-talented entertainers.
Country Throwdown tour artists include Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Drake White. Willie’s Picnic will feature many artists who are traditionally featured on the Willie’s Picnic lineup, including Ray Price, David Allan Coe, Paula Nelson and more.
Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.com for $30 or they are available at the gate for $35.

I don't know if there will be ants at this picnic but there will be plenty of iconic hits. Nelson is known for "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," "Midnight Rider," "Blue Skies," "Always on My Mind, "Georgia on My Mind," and "If You've Got the Money Honey, I've Got the Time." And about a million more tunes. He's a Texas legend.
