  7. My daughter is 43 years old and has been in love with Willie since she was 13 years old. Willie is her Hero. It took her 10 year old daughter to get her to finally meet Willie. My granddaughter sings country music also. We Love Willie and hope he will return to the Forum again next year in 2014

  8. I am old school so I am working on the digital part but the photo I took is high resolution so i have several gonna get them digitized by the 23 jackie blue

  9. WOW..like I have said. I have been very blessed to have been up close and personal with Willie on a few different occasions..I was very blessed to have held his hand and rub his arm for seconds last nite at the Louisville Palace. I get to add another autograph to my collection. Maybe the up coming calender will come along with a Willie’s World Newsletter. I do have another calender with Willie and Sister Bobby from a few years back.. How ever it goes down. I am looking forward to the 2014 Willie Calender.. It would be absolutely crazy thou..if we were in the Calender!! <3

    • LOL! I always make it to the front and once I, too, caressed his forearm at one of his concerts at The Backyard in Austin TX (instead of an autograph) – ha! And to know someone else was possessed to do it as well. Too funny. The last concert of his I was lucky enough to have gone to was his 80th Birthday Bash, again at The Backyard, and this time all I did was take pictures with my phone lol. When I realized I wasn’t trying to get my cowboy boot autographed like I planned, it was too late ๐Ÿ™ My bff did get the inside of her coat signed though ๐Ÿ™‚ I love me some Willie Nelson!! (But if my photo of Willie on a cell phone at the show makes the calendar, it will be worth me not getting my boot autographed!)

  10. This is a picture I took of Willie in Foxwoods in October 2011.

  11. This is a picture I took of Willie in Johnston town in Pennsylvania in 2010 and went to it.

  12. This is an awesome picture I took of Willie in Johnstown.

  13. This is a cool picture of Willie I took in concert. This was in Washington Pennsylvania at the Meadows racetrack and Casino in 2010.

  14. This was an awesome concert to see Willie at the Cape Cod Melody Tent. This is an awesome picture. I’m sure you’ll like it.

  15. Here’s a picture I took of my Willie Nelson pumpkin glowing. This would be cool for the calendar on October.

  16. Each time I’ve seen Willie Nelson and Family perform, it has been special and memorable. First was at the Minnesota State Fair around 1986 when I was just a little kid. Almost twenty years passed before I saw him again, this time with Bob Dylan at a ballpark in Cooperstown, New York. Most recently, a few years back, Willie joined Wynton Marsalis for a night of jazz tunes in New York City. Musically and in spirit, Willie is a true inspiration!

  17. I took this picture of Willie in Providence Rhode Island and went with two friends of mine in 2012.

  18. I’ve loved Willie for as long as I can remember. I met him a few times when my brother, Stephen Mendell, was associated with him over the years, in Austin, Texas.
    Love you, Willie!
    Susie Mendell Nolan

  19. wish i had some of you when you played at the sunrise flemarket in sunrise fl.

  20. I have been to several of Willie’s concerts in Georgia. I grew up just down the road in Waco Texas. I always wanted to meet Willie, my hero. I babysat for my brother so he and his wife could go see Willie long ago at the Night Owl Club. I never had great seats until I saw him in Hiawasse, GA in February 2012. I got to shake his hand and got an autograph. A dream come true.

    Celebrity Theatre, Phoenix, AZ July 2012. This was my favorite Willie concert of all time! The Celebrity is a very small venue and I love that Willie plays these kinds of intimate concerts. It’s just one more way to prove that Willie has a heart of gold. Willie, live strong, live long!

  29. The first time I heard you in concert was at your theater in Branson, Mo. I caught two of your shows in Alexandria, La with the last being November 30, 2012. Thank you for allowing us to enter your contest. Did not know what you were looking for exactly. I hope these are acceptable.

  41. Dearest Willie,
    I have a picture that was taken on my phone the day you played at Harrahs Rincon casino in September of 2009. PLEASE go to my Photos on my Facebook page to see it. I posted it as: ” ANGELS FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE GROUND ” it is a phenomenal picture of a large Angel with 3 Little Angels up in the CLOUDS!!!!! What is ironic about this same day of seeing the angels in the sky, YOU opened your act with: “ANGELS FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE GROUND ” My sister and I will NEVER forget this! I also showed to your fans in the audience and they were AWESTRUCK! I’m praying to your ANGELS to help you find this message, so I can GIVE you this picture for an ALBUM cover,
    My respect and regards,
    Maggie Burrows #2fan, My sister is your #1!!!!!!
    By the way: you also gave me your bandana to give to her in her wheelchair! We were in the isle in front of you.
