This awesome tour shirt is for legendary country singer Willie Nelson. Nelson is a main figure of outlaw country, a subgenre developed in response to the conservative restrictions of Nashville sound. In addition to his music career, Nelson has acted in several films, co-authored several books, and is a proud activist for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana.
Nelson's career started as early as the late 50s when he moved to Houston, Texas and started working as a disk jockey, while writing music. He recorded his first album in 1962 titled ...And Then I Wrote. This lead to a contract with RCA Records and an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry. Nelson's interest turned to outlaw country in the 70s after he signed with Atlantic Records. He recorded Shotgun Willie and Stages and later the critically acclaimed Red Headed Stranger with Columbia Records. In the 80s he released Honeysuckle Rose, the soundtrack to the musical drama film of the same name. Nelson starred in the film directed by Jerry Schatzberg. During the decade, he also joined a super group known as the Highwaymen, which included Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson.
The tag says Extra Large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult Large.
