RNR News and Notes

 

 

You may have never heard of the Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing’s annual Grammy Week Celebration ... but Wednesday night's celebration of the men and women behind the music was a star studded affair - with Willie Nelson being honored.   The 85 year old took the stage - and brought some friends along too ... first he was joined by his Promise of the Real, his sons' Lukas and Micah Nelson and Lukas’s band.

 

Later he was joined by Grammy Album of the Year nominee Kacey Musgraves, veteran country songwriter and producer Buddy Cannon, and surprise guest Dave Matthews.  Of course camera phones were rolling (pardon the pun) so we can all enjoy the performances
