Considered by many as one of the most highly esteemed contemporary figures in country music, Willie Nelson and his family’s contributions to the genre have served as a source of motivation for a younger generation of country music performers.
Willie Nelson is touring the United States with the Nelson Family, despite being 89 years old and still alive and well.
Recently, he revealed for the first time to the general public that at the beginning of this year he had a very disturbing health problem, about which he had been silent until now.
Willie Nelson said last May, while the band was on tour, that a member of Willie Nelson’s family had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, Willie Nelson decided to cancel their Jazz Fest headlining gig.
Willie’s recent admission that he is in fact playing a band member was the first time the public learned the name of a mysterious band member.
The country music legend, who was 89 at the time, reportedly slept on her tour bus before traveling to Nashville, The New York Times reported. They said he woke up in the middle of the night complaining of shortness of breath. Currently, Willie’s rapid PCR test results have come back positive for the COVID-19 virus.
