After Canceling Several Concerts, Willie Nelson’s Rep Releases Update On His Health | Country Music Videos

After being forced to cancel several shows due to health issues, Willie Nelson’s representative finally has some good news for us.

A few weeks ago, Nelson canceled his January 28 and 29 performances in Vegas, and backed out of his February 6, 7, and 8 performances at Buck Owens Crystal palace in Bakersfield, California. On Feb. 8, he also cancelled his February 10th and 11th concerts in Arizona and new Mexico, respectively. 

Nelson, who is now 83, had fans worried since his reasoning for all the concert cancellations was due to an “undisclosed illness”. He also was a no-show at the GRAMMY Awards Sunday night (Feb. 12), where he was nominated, and won, for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for his tribute album Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin.

He was well represented, though. His son, Lukas attended, and shared a photo of the big moment when his dad won his eighth GRAMMY Award. 

Dad just won a Grammy!!

According to CNN, Nelson’s rep said he is expected to be “on the road again” and will be “performing as scheduled at the San Antonio Stock Show on Feb. 16.”

We are happy to hear his health has improved! Still sending prayers his way for a continued recovery.

Take a listen to his version of “Someone To Watch Over Me”, off his GRAMMY-winning Summertime album.
