An afternoon storm didn’t prevent revelers at Willie Nelson’s annual Fourth of July Picnic from partying the night away in Austin, Texas.
Wednesday’s (July 4) event at Circuit of the Americas was briefly evacuated for safety, affecting sets by Ray Wylie Hubbard, the Wild Feathers and Billy Joe Shaver.
katey, hey sorry I didn’t get to play. Find a gig of mine close to you and I’ll put you on guest list. https://t.co/TYQ5pZkbEp

Backstage, the Willie’s Reserve bus offered members of the press a taste of the company’s new line of CBD-infused coffee and an exclusive listen of Nelson’s forthcoming Frank Sinatra tribute album, My Way.
