Willie Nelson is no stranger to death hoaxes. In fact, he’s probably been a victim to them more than any other celebrity. Just last week, there was yet another rumor going around that he may have died.
Luckily, it looks like his management is always ready for these rumors because this one was debunked before it spread. They quickly reported that Willie “is still not dead again today. He is fine.” Like Loretta Lynn said after a stroke in May, “Willie ain’t dead and neither am I.” It’ll take a whole lot more than a couple rumors to take down these country music legends.
Not only is Nelson very much alive, but it doesn’t look like he’s slowing down anytime soon. The 84-year-old is currently on the road once again with his Outlaw Festival Tour. Throughout the tour, he’ll be joined by Van Morrison, Kacey Musgraves, Eric Church, Blackberry Smoke and several others.
When he brings this tour to Jersey Country on September 8th, he’ll be joined by The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Margo Price, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Particle Kid.
