Willie Nelson at the Fillmore tonight (12/5/2012)

Posted By on Wed, Dec 5, 2012 at 6:57 AM

There aren't many people who can hit the stage at 79 and still draw audiences of all ages. Then again, there aren't many people who make national headlines when they cut their hair, either. Willie Nelson, of course, is an icon. The Country Music Awards just named its Lifetime Achievement Award after him. Nelson's weathered looks aren't nearly as beaten up as his guitar, Trigger, which looks more like swiss cheese than a musical instrument - but it's been getting the job done for decades. At this point, Nelson's timeless vocals have won over as many fans as his pro-marijuana stance. Hey, did you hear the one about him smoking a joint on the roof of the White House? Yeah, who hasn't? With Lukas Nelson, Paula Nelson. $60.50-$167.50. Dec. 5, 8 p.m. The Fillmore, 1000 N.C. Music Factory Blvd. 704-549-5555.
