Music Pick | Willie Nelson & Family New Year

If you can’t spend the holiday season with your own kin, the next best thing is to celebrate with Willie Nelson & Family, and this month, our bearded, pigtailed hometown hero will be closing out 2015 with three consecutive performances at ACL Live at the Moody Theater—fittingly located on his namesake boulevard.

With a career spanning decades, the 82-year-old crooner has produced dozens of albums, and amassed countless awards and accolades—ranging from number-one records to a New York Times bestselling book—and is a bona fide music legend. And while Nelson certainly doesn’t require supporting star power, for this event, Grammy-winning country singer Kacey Musgraves is also set to take the stage. (The two have collaborated before: Musgraves performed at Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic this summer, and he’s featured in her song “Are You Sure,” the video for which was shot at east side hipster honky tonk The White Horse.)

Along with Musgraves, the lineup includes Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real—who specialize in a sound they’ve dubbed “cowboy hippie surf rock”—and each evening will be hosted by KGSR’s Andy Langer, the man behind one of Austin’s most recognizable voices.

Whether you’re a fan or a Nelson newbie, this is what we’d dub a guaranteed good time, and we suggest you catch the music icon this month before he goes, um, ”On the Road Again.”

Willie Nelson & Family New Year will be taking place at ACL Live on the evenings of December 29, 30 and 31. Tickets are available at acl-live.com.
