Busy week for Willie. Monday, country music’s pater familias, 86, stages his exclusive friends and family Fourth of July preview, then Saturday he screens Red Headed Stranger at his ranch in Luck. In between, the mortality savant of trilogy of closer Ride Me Back Home welcomes a cavalcade of Nashville dos and don’ts: Luke Combs, Nathaniel Rateliff, Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson, Steve Earle, David Allan Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Hayes Carll, etc. I call shotgun!
