Willie Nelson Brings Fourth of July Picnic Back to Texas
Willie Nelson's annual Fourth of July picnic will take place at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Selma, Texas, a community located approximately 60 miles south of Austin, the Austin American-Statesman newspaper reports. Nelson began his Fourth of July picnics in 1973 in Dripping Springs, Texas. Last year, the event was staged in Washington state, marking the only year it has taken place outside Texas. Ray Price, Merle Haggard and David Allan Coe are already confirmed to appear this year. Nelson, Price and Haggard toured together in 2007 after releasing the album, Last of the Breed.
