Willie Fortune, "the Other Willie"
Willie Nelson Tribute Artist
WILLIE FORTUNE PAYS HOMAGE TO WILLIE NELSON WITH HIS UNCANNY LIKENESS AND SOUND.
WILLIE FORTUNE HAS BEEN CALLED "THE MOST AUTHENTIC" WILLIE NELSON TRIBUTE ARTIST IN THE USA.
Willie Fortune has been a Willie Nelson fan for many years. He has lived a very normal American life. School, business career, family, and weekends spent playing in bands and singing and playing Willie Nelson songs.
After a New Years Eve show a friend pointed out that Willie Fortune sings like Willie Nelson, talks like Willie, looks like Willie, dresses like Willie, and is the same physical size and eye color. He asked, "So why don't you do a Willie Nelson Tribute Show?"
A seed was planted that grew and Willie Fortune decided to proceed; but only if he got permission from Willie Nelson himself. And it was Willie HIMSELF that made the Willie Fortune's Willie Nelson Tribute Show spring to life.
Willie Fortune was able to arrange a meeting with Willie Nelson before one of his concerts. Willie Nelson had been out jogging and was wearing a exercise suit. Willie Fortune was dressed exactly like the real Willie dresses on stage. Willie Nelson said, "well you look more like me than I do".
Willie Fortune explained the idea of developing a Willie Nelson Musical Tribute Show. The real Willie liked the idea. He gave Willie Fortune his permission, blessing, encouragement, and endorsement. He personally signed guitars and several of his books and they took some pictures together.
That is how Willie Fortune's Willie Nelson Tribute Show came to be. Willie Fortune now devotes all of his time to honoring Willie Nelson with Willie Fortune's Willie Nelson Tribute Show.
Knowing that the real Willie Nelson is the one-and-only original, Willie Fortune started calling himself "the Other Willie" because there is only one real Willie Nelson, and he could honor him by playing and singing his songs for his fans.
And so was created:
WILLIE FORTUNE'S WILLIE NELSON TRIBUTE SHOW.
Willie Fortune "the Other Willie" has performed concerts at Performing Arts Centers, Colleges, festivals, state and county fairs, corporate events, charity events, private parties, and weddings in many states. He has been mistaken for the real Willie many times, which he considers an honor and a privilege.
