BEE CAVE, TX—The Backyard is celebrating 20 years of live music in the Texas Hill Country and who better to kick off this monumental season than the one and only Willie Nelson. Willie will be joined by his family Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Paula Nelson Band, and Folk Uke on Sunday April 28th, 2013 just 2 days before his 80th birthday.

Willie has been a part of The Backyard family since the venue’s conception and performed as the first musical guest at The Backyard on April 15th, 1993. Named the Best Open Air Music Venue three months later, the Backyard strives to carry on the 20 year legacy of creating an atmosphere in which music and nature come together in perfect harmony.

The concert on April 28th 2013 will mark the first show in which the entrance to The Backyard (13801 Bee Cave Parkway 78738) will be accessible from RR 620 as well as Highway 71. Bee Cave Parkway is now fully complete which means there are now two ways to enter and exit the venue.
