Nelson, one of the most beloved figures in entertainment, is one of the pioneering figures of outlaw country, but his astounding musical output also incorporates jazz, blues, folk and even reggae. He has released 72 studio albums, 10 live albums, 37 compilations, 27 collaborations and two soundtrack albums. 

His most recent album, God's Problem Child, featured a tribute to the late Merle Haggard and appearances by Leon Russell, Alison Krauss and Jamey Johnson. It was released to considerable critical acclaim.

Nelson, 84, last performed in Amarillo in 2013; a 2014 concert was canceled and never rescheduled.
