Willie Nelson gave a ‘fabulous’ concert at the Ohio State Fair

Willie Nelson performing at the Ohio State Fair on Saturday night.

Willie Nelson’s autobiography, “It’s A Long Story” written with David Ritz, was published in 2016. It was then – and still is – a long story.

Nelson, with the help of his family, performed at the Celeste Center at the Ohio State Fair on Saturday night just three months old and changed after his 89th birthday. Last night he said his recent recording, ‘A Beautiful Time’ was his 89th album.

A long story indeed. One studded with so much success as a recording artist and especially as a songwriter, that even longtime loyal fans might think, “Oh, I forgot that one,” when reviewing his accomplishments – which, by the way, include appearing in 30 films.

He gave as comprehensive and memorable insight into this history as one could have hoped for last night during a fabulous set with a stripped down band that included himself and his son Micah (known professionally as the Particle Kid ) on acoustic guitars, Mickey Raphael on harmonica, Billy English on a standing snare drum and double bass player Kevin Smith.
