Willie’s 4th of July picnic,1973.

39 years ago,I went to Willie Nelson’s 4th of July picnic in Dripping Springs,Texas outside of Austin.The lineup was quite impressive with guests ranging from Waylon Jennings,Kris Kristofferson with Rita Coolidge,to my favorite of the day:Charlie Rich,Mohair Sam himself.This was before Behind Closed Doors came out,but Charlie had quite a bevy of young ladies of the cast-iron curls persuasion cheering him on.Of course Willie himself ruled the roost and showed how he had Texas in the palm of his hand at that point in time.I was hawking my freshly printed T for Texas shirts,which went over quite well.
