Willie Nelson To Perform Stardust At Hollywood Bowl

Willie Nelson will perform his classic 1978 ‘Stardust’ album in its entirety at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles in August.

‘Stardust’ was Nelson’s biggest selling album.

Nelson, who was living in Malibu at the time, asked his neighbour Booker T. Jones (Booker T & The MGs) to arrange a version of ‘Moonlight In Vermont’. Willie was so impressed with the result that he engaged Booker T. to produce the album.

Willie Nelson won a Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal for his performance of ‘Georgia On My Mind’ from the album. The album stayed on Billboard’s Country Album chart for over 10 years.

The songs from ‘Stardust’ are:

Georgia On My Mind
Blues Skies
All Of Me
Unchained Melody
September Song
On The Sunny Side Of The Street
Moonlight In Vermont
Don’t Get Around Much Anymore
Someone To Watch Over Me

Willie Nelson will perform ‘Stardust’ at the Hollywood Bowl on August 9 and 10.
