I have never been to a concert but If I had one to go to it would be Willies.
I did go to Tombstone Junction when I was younger and Loretta Lyn was there singing with her two daughters.
She is a little tiny gal.

I adore Loretta Lynn……just a smidge more than I love Dolly. They exemplify what it means to be a strong and successful woman. Not to mention their amazing talent.

I don't know you guys. I was 13 when he and Waylon were on the radio with "Mama's Don't Let Your Babies be Cowboys". That was some pretty good stuff back in those days! Don't forget the soundtrack to "Electric Horseman" a little later. Or how can you not like "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys"?? LOL! Some good tunes from back in the day!

Oh........and I saw him in '83 at Rupp. He remembered all the words and everything! Ha!

I was also there at Rupp in '83. Unlike so many of the acts from the 80's, Willie just stood there & sang.... and he had the entire arena on their feet.

Always loved them both too. Dolly did bow to some of the wokeness a few years back when people complained about the word “Dixie”. She even changed Dixie Stampede to just The Stampede. Considering how strong and influential she is, I was a bit disappointed. Still, she’s Dolly.

At the end of that concert he hammered "Whiskey River" (if I recall correctly), at which time a GINORMOUS Texas flag unrolled from the top down.

I visited Luckenbach, Texas, not long ago. Lot's of pictures of him and Waylon on the wall in the country store. Awesome place to visit!

That used to be the opening number.
