Willie Nelson Bridges Coachella and Stagecoach
Willie Nelson agreed to perform at Indio, CAs new Stagecoach music festival only if he also scored at spot at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (both festivals are organized by influential concert promoters Goldenvoice). Nelson got his wish and, this past weekend, played a set at the sold-out indie-rock gathering. Nelson offered a mix of originals and covers, including Whisky River, Good Hearted Woman, and Will the Circle Be Unbroken. He will return to Coachellas festival grounds next weekend for the inaugural Stagecoach, which also features Kris Kristofferson, Nickel Creek, Yonder Mountain String Band, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Del McCoury Band, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, among others.
