Willie Nelson's birthday celebration has already begun, and will continue well after the country legend turns 80. Jamey Johnson and Ashley Monroe were among the stars on hand last week to tape a special episode of "CMT Crossroads" in Willie's honor.
Neil Young and Sheryl Crow also took part in the event, along with Leon Russell and Norah Jones. Rocker Jack White hosted the concert at his Third Man Records studio in Nashville.
Willie turns 80 at the end of the month, but the premiere of "CMT Crossroads: Willie Nelson & Friends From Third Man Records" is slated for June.
Willie Nelson's birthday is also being celebrated with a special video campaign. Details on how to submit a clip are posted on Nelson's website.
