Willie Nelson flies high at the Winspear for Virgin America

I am not a big country music fan, so when I found out that Wilie Nelson was the performer at Wednesday night's Virgin America launch party, I thought, "Meh."

Boy, was I converted after seeing him perform. Willie performed for about an hour singing all of his greatest hits. I was surprised that I knew so many of his songs. He looked great and sounded even better.  I am now a fan. I even "Liked" his Facebook Fan Page.

Richard Branson was the perfect host, spending time mingling with guests and shaking hands.  They say everything is bigger and better in Texas.  Sir Richard fits right in.

  1. love me some Willie. We saw him a while back and he sang for nearly 2 hours and never took a break. If you look at his right arm you can see the muscle he has in that playing arm. We decided his handshake would be killer.
