Willie Nelson to christen Springdale amphitheater a month after playing North Little Rock

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown and Willie's Picnic is coming to the Osage Creek Amphitheater, a new venue west of Springdale. The concert event, scheduled for July 3, includes Willie, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Jack Ingram and more artists to be announced.

Even though this release just went out, according to the Country Throwdown website, regular tickets are already sold out. VIP tickets, at $199, are still available.

UPDATE: Also, Willie & Co. will land in North Little Rock a month earlier, Saturday, June 4, for another all-day festival at North Shore Park. The Braided One will be joined by Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Craig Campbell and Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real. Tickets, which range from $34 to $74, are available via Ticketmaster.

UPDATE II: The Country Throwdown website was misleading. Only fan-club pre-sale tickets are sold out. Plenty remain via the Osage website, ranging in price from $43 to $95.

The Osage PR department also wants me to make it clear that the event the Northwest Arkansas amphitheater is hosting is a Willie's Picnic, while the NLR one is not. It's the first Willie's Picnic held in Arkansas and unlike a regular Country Throwdown, Willie and Friends will headline, there will be more artists on the bill and a longer day of entertainment.

  • The Family Council vs. Issue 1

    Here's a storyline to watch: The Family Council, the conservative Christian group that's long fought against same-sex marriage and abortion rights, has come out heavy against Issue 1, the so-called "tort reform" ballot proposal that would limit damage awards in lawsuits. The messaging battle over Issue 1 has long been seen as one that pitted the deep pockets of the state Chamber of Commerce and big business in the state against the deep pockets of trial lawyers. Could the Family Council's truck with evangelicals tip the scales?
