Willie and Alison outdoors in Nampa

Country music fans have been waiting months for this night to arrive: icon Willie Nelson (whose new CD with Merle Haggard was last week’s best-selling country album) and bluegrass singer-songwriter Alison Krauss. Officially billed as Willie Nelson & Family and Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, the evening promises to be filled with gorgeous harmonies, classic melodies and blissful smiles — on stage and off.
