Willie Nelson & Family graced Western North Carolina this past February with an amazing night of his brand of rebellious country music at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort Event Center. Willie Nelson is an American icon who is known as a philanthropist and activist for marijuana and animal rights. The sold out venue contained 3,000 fans eager to see Willie perform with his trusted guitar, Trigger, and his family band. Nelson’s band included his sister, Bobbie Nelson on piano, his son Lukas on guitar, and Kevin Smith on upright bass. The show was full of classic Nelson songs including “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die”.
