About Willie Nelsons 4th of July Picnic Willie Nelson

The idea of the show came to the singer in 1972 after he performed at the Dripping Springs Reunion, held at the Hurbult Ranch in Texas. The concept of presenting the audiences with a musical show at a large scale captured the interest of the artist. With the help of music promoters such as Michael FarLand, Edward Allen, Peter Smith and Don Snyder, Nelson inaugurated the event at the Hurbult Ranch. The camping festival was spread over three days where country ensembles and artists such as Hank Snow, Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff, Tom T. Hall, Sonny James, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson performed. The show was attended by forty thousand people and with its success Nelson decided to host the second annual Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic at the same facility. The next few years posed challenges for the picnic’s organizers as Senate resolutions and security concerns, pushed Nelson and his promoters to increase concert security and change the venue location. It was during the eighties that Nelson finally decided to move the event to the Luckenback in Texas, after which it was again moved to Billy Bob’s Texas in 2000.
