Watch Beto O’Rourke join Willie Nelson for “On the Road Again” at annual 4th of July Picnic

Willie Nelson threw his annual 4th of July picnic on Monday at Austin's Q2 Stadium, which he headlined with his family band and a few surprise guests. One of those was old friend and current Democratic nominee in the Texas Gubernatorial race, Beto O'Rourke. He and his son came out for Willie's classic "On the Road Again," and you can watch them play that below.

The 2022 Willie Nelson 4th of July Picnic was his first since 2019 and also featured sets from Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Tyler Childers, Brothers Osborne, Charley Crockett, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Asleep at the Wheel and more.

Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Steve Earle, Charley Crockett and more are all also joining Willie at various points on his 2022 Outlaw Music Festival tour. Dates have been added and rearranged a little since our last post, and the tour now ends in Camden, NJ on September 23 at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion (formerly BB&T Pavilion) with Stapleton, Zach Bryan, Larkin Poe, and Brittney Spencer also performing. All dates are listed below.
