Listen to Willie Nelson on iHeartRadio

Willie Nelson might have hosted his official birthday concert in Austin, Texas over the weekend, but he took the stage in Florida on the day he turned 80.  Fox 4 in Fort Myers says the fans were more than happy to help him celebrate. 

Longtime fan Patti Colts was among those at Tuesday night's show.  She says she went to her first Willie Nelson concert at the age of 13, and four years later got "in big trouble" when her mom saw her dancing in a swimsuit at Willie's Fourth of July Picnic. 

Other fans are expressing their appreciation for all the years Nelson has spent entertaining, along with their amazement that Willie's "on the road again" making music with his friends after all these years.
