Happy Birthday from all of us at Kickin' Country 103.1 today to the iconic Willie Nelson who turns 83 years old. On this date (April 29th) in 1933, Willie Nelson was born in the small Central Texas town of Abbott.

Willie was originally in a polka band when he got his music career started and when he was a teenager, he booked the legendary Bob Wills in to the Meridian, Texas VFW.

So sound off Concho Valley in the below comment section and wish Willie a Happy Birthday. And while you're add it, let's hear your favorite Willie memories and your favorite Willie songs. We'd love to hear from you on the birthday of an American icon, the 'Red Headed Stranger' Willie Nelson!
