According to a news release sent by Mark Givens, Executive Director  at Main Street El Dorado, Willie Nelson is heading to El Dorado as part of the “Willie Nelson & Family Live” tour. The concert is March 14 and will be held at the El Dorado Municipal Auditorium (100 W 8th).

The Texan and living legend is behind historic recordings like “Crazy,” “Hello Walls,” “Red Headed Stranger” and “Stardust.”  His career has spanned six decades and more than 200 albums.

Nelson tours tirelessly, climbing aboard Honeysuckle Rose III (he rode his first two buses into the ground) and performing around the country.In the last five years he has delivered 10 new releases, two of which received Grammy nominations, and a career-spanning box set, released his debut novel and headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, all the while continuing to lobby against horse slaughter and produce his own blend of biodiesel fuel.

An interesting  3 page bio was sent with the news release. It is too long to feature here but if you are interested, drop me a message in the comment section below and I’ll email it to you.
