Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion Will Broadcast Virtual Festival


Willie Nelson's usual SXSW performance may have been canceled due to the coronavirus, but he's making sure the show goes on. Saving Country Music reports Nelson's Luck Reunion will instead take place online on Thursday, March 19, with many of the original artists in the lineup performing from their homes. The star-studded lineup of this "Til Further Notice" event includes Nelson himself, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, Randy Houser, Margo Price, Lucinda Williams, Paul Simon and Edie Brickell, Jewel, Nathaniel Rateliff and many others. The free livestream starts at 6 P.M. Central on luckreunion.com/tilfurthernotice and twitch.tv/luckreunion. There will be a virtual tip jar available with proceeds going to charities and artists in need.
