Musician Willie Nelson performs at Chumash Casino on Thursday, Jan. 6.
WILLIE NELSON: Starting a new year with a concert that goes to the heart is a pleasure, but one not always realized, given that none of us are totally in control of who is playing where and when (though we probably wish we were, from time to time). But from the heartfelt performers files comes news that Mr. Willie Nelson will be at Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez on Thursday, Jan. 6. Would it be a fine day to do a bit of wine tasting in the area, too? Well. It's always a fine day for that, 'round those parts. Get concert info now.
