Monday, April 29th will be the 80th birthday for Country Music Hall of Fame member, and beloved icon Willie Nelson, and he's celebrating with a few of his friends! Last week, Willie taped 'Willie Nelson & Friends, from Third Man Records' in Nashville, which will be aired in June on CMT's 'Crossroads'. Third Man Records is owned by Grammy award winner Jack White, who did such an awesome job with Loretta Lynn's 'Van Lear Rose' in 2004.

Joining Willie on the special will be Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, and a whole bunch more folks, who are just happy to be in Willie's presence! Willie Nelson's new cd 'Let's Face the Music and Dance' is out in stores now.

Happy Birthday Willie Nelson, from 97.3 the Dawg!
