Willie Nelson, Country Music Icon
One of the biggest authorities in country music and a name everyone knows, Willie Nelson has produced more than 2,500 songs and released nearly 300 albums, breaking through in the industry as early as the 1950’s. The “Crazy” singer was born and raised in the small town of Abbott, Texas, but quickly fell in love with Maui, Hawaii. As a long-term local and established North Shore resident, he has grown to become an adored part of the community.
As he continues to embark on his legacy, Willie Nelson remains one of Maui’s favorite North Shore homeowners. You can catch Willie at Charley’s Restaurant & Saloon in Paia, where he surprises lucky guests with live performances, or hosting poker nights in the area with fellow household names Owen Wilson, Don Nelson, and Woody Harrelson.
