Billy Strings shared a cover of Willie Nelson‘s 1980 hit “On The Road Again” featuring pro-shot footage from a recent performance at Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA near Seattle on August 14th. The young bluegrass torchbearer will join Nelson on the road throughout the month of September for the Red Headed Stranger’s traveling Outlaw Music Festival, where he will perform alongside a rotating lineup featuring Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit, Charlie Crockett, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Brittney Spencer, The Avett Brothers, Larkin Poe, and more.
Strings will join the tour, which kicked off earlier this summer at the end of June, on September 9th in Alpharetta, GA. He will be on the bill for shows in Charlotte, NC (9/10); Virginia Beach, VA (9/11); Bridgeport, CT (9/13); Mansfield, MA (9/16); and Saratoga Springs, NY (9/18). He will then hop off the lineup beginning at Merriweather Post Pavillion on September 17th and for all dates after September 18th.
“On The Road Again” was originally released on the soundtrack to Honeysuckle Rose in 1980. Billy Strings first covered the song during a Billy Strings & Friends set at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in 2019, per BillyBase.
