Willie Nelson confirms the reason he’s still touring at 90 years old

Willie Nelson might have been entertaining audiences for the better part of sixty years, but he has absolutely no plans to slow down.

The iconic singer-songwriter is set to turn 90 years old later this month, and yet he continues to work every bit as hard as he always has, producing great music and making sure his legions of fans have every opportunity to see him playing live.

In fact, Nelson, who signed his first major recording contract with Liberty Records back in 1962, will be celebrating his upcoming milestone birthday while on tour. The star discussed the prospect in a recent interview with AARP, stating that while work wasn’t necessary for him, it was good for him.
