Willie Nelson confirms the reason he’s still touring at 90 yrs old.

The legendary singer-songwriter will be 90 later this month, yet he continues to work as hard as he always has, creating excellent music and ensuring that his legions of admirers have every chance to see him perform live.

In reality, Nelson will be celebrating his approaching milestone birthday while on tour, having secured his first big recording deal with Liberty Records in 1962. In a recent interview, the actor acknowledged the possibility, saying that although employment wasn’t required for him, it was beneficial.

He said that working is really good for him, no matter what kind of show it is.

It’ll be a lot of fun because he’ll be there for two days with a lot of his good friends coming out and saying hello and singing with him. He is excited about it.

While the phenomenon of high-profile entertainers continuing to perform well past the age of retirement isn’t anything new – examples include Dick Van Dyke (97), Michael Caine (89), and David Attenborough (96)—there is a distinction to be made between appearing in film or TV roles, lending your voice to a project, and performing live music on a multi-show tour.

Nelson, on the other hand, continues to secure dates and put on amazing concerts. Not bad for a guy approaching his tenth decade on the planet!

In response to the idea of reaching 90, the country singer stated that Norman Lear, a good friend of his, turned 100 not long ago, and he told Norman that he has been telling everybody it’s just a number. Is he correct? To which Norman said, yes, it’s just a number.

The Texas native also said that he is always eager to go back on the tour bus and perform in new places.

It may not be horrible, but I believe it’s amazing that Willie Nelson still has the energy to come up on stage and perform for so many people under such duress!

And what about his voice?! I’ll be a happy man if I sound half as good as he does when I’m that age – assuming I survive that long in the first place.

Nelson can still croon like he always could despite having spent so many years singing.

I, for one, wish Willie Nelson a very happy 90th birthday and many, many more.
