Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson & John Mellencamp to Play Ballparks

NATIONAL MUSIC NEWS: We could come up with all kinds of clever ways of telling you to the upcoming tour, but nothing could really capture it like this: Bob Dylan will headline a tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp this summer. This one will put the trio, who haven't played together in more than two decades, together on a tour of minor league baseball ballparks all over the country.

PLAY BALL! - Dylan headlined a 2004 tour of minor league ballparks, drawing rave reviews from critics and fans. From what we understand this time around, children get in for free when they are accompanied by parents. And, (this is my favorite part....!) Tickets to most games are general admission only. This means fans of the music and of baseball can find their own sweetspot in the park to watch the show from. (Bring a blanket for the lawn!) There is so much bad news in the world today, I can't get over how great this is! Dylan arrives at McCoy Stadium, home to New England's beloved Paw Sox (AAA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox) on July 21st. We plan to be there!

Hey I thought you might be interested in seeing some stories I did about Willie Nelson and his life and his new truck stop called Willie's Place in Carl's Corner, TX.

I'm a news anchor/reporter, but have started doing a Texas entertainment show on the side, called This Is Texas.

I've done quite a few stories out at Willie's Place and here are links to a few of them!!! Hope you enjoy!
