COUNTRY | Willie Nelson

comment

As an American country music icon, Willi Nelson stands as one of the few remaining country stars in a genre that has, in many cases, sold its soul. And at 81, this red-headed stranger shows no signs of slowing down. When Nelson played Kodak Hall last summer, his sparse arrangements, rendered by an equally sparse backing band (Kevin Smith, we love you baby), repeatedly brought the crowd — not just country fans — to its feet with the music's beguilingly lush splendor and twang. Willie Nelson always has been, always will be.

Willie Nelson and Family, with Alison Krauss and Union Station, perform Saturday, June 21, at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. 7 p.m. $38.80-$96.55. Cmacevents.com; Willienelson.com.
