VIDEO: Recap of Willie Nelson and Ryan Bingham

Who: Willie Nelson and Family + Ryan Bingham
When: Friday April 15, 2016
Where: Whitewater Amphitheater, New Braunfels

My wife and I saw Willie Nelson at Whitewater in 2010 with Ray Wylie Hubbard and Seth Walker opening the show, and at the time that was the best live show I had ever been to. I don't know if it was the spirit of Merle Haggard hanging in the air or something else, but Ryan Bingham opened the show and then he and his band got back up toward the end of Willie's set for a couple of Merle Haggard songs and they closed the show with a gospel set. MAN what a show! Willie always speaks through some lyrics of some songs, but try singing the same stuff for 40 or 50 years just because everybody wants to hear them and I'm sure you'd lose a little of your drive for giving 100% to those songs each time too! He did, however do MUCH less of that this time than he did in 2010, and I would say everything was almost perfect! Whitewater has done a great job rebuilding from the floods last May and October, and as usual they rebuilt bigger and better!

Below I'm including a sample of Willie's show, and I'll eventually get a Ryan Bingham video posted as well, but I have to get this up soon, because I want you all to see how great this show was! I also might post a few complete songs to YouTube as well, so be on the lookout!
