. (Radio.com) The 42nd edition of Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic will return to Austin, Texas for the first time in four years for a stacked day of music, that includes the expected headliner of Willie Nelson closing out his namesake festival.

Also booked for the one-day event, which will be held at the Circuit of The Americas' Austin360 Amphitheater are Eric Church, Merle Haggard, Kacey Musgraves, Sturgill Simpson, Asleep At The Wheel, Jamey Johnson, Jason Isbell, Leon Russell, and many more.

"I got the idea from Woodstock about how music could bring people from different places together," Nelson said in a press release. "I had just moved to Austin and had come to realize what a great music center it was and could be. I thought it would be a nice idea to, this year have it back in Austin, but at a more comfortable venue for the fans AND the pickers." Read more here.
