The legendary musician, activist and actor announced in Augusta that he would have to cancel several shows due to “breathing problems.” He broke the news to his fans on Twitter, writing "To my fans, I’m sorry to cancel my tour, but I have a breathing problem that I need to have my doctor check out. I’ll be back. Love, Willie."

Nelson graced the 2019 CMA Awards stage for a duet with country phenom Kacey Musgraves on Wednesday night in Nashville. Crooning on the stage at Bridgestone Arena, the duet sang a rendition of the beloved “Muppet Movie” song “Rainbow Connection.”
