Willie Nelson Makes Special Little Girl’s Dream Come True

Willie Nelson Tatum Lee

Willie Nelson spent his weekend fulfilling one little girl’s big dreams.

On Friday night (July 11), Nelson took the stage at the Starlight Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri, joined by Jason Isbell and co-headliner Allison Krauss and Union Station. And it was there that the singer met adorable audience member named Tatum Lee.

Tatum made the 2-and-a-half-hour drive from Joplin, Missouri to Kansas City with her family. It was all thanks to the loving volunteers with the Make a Wish Foundation, who arranged for Tatum to meet her favorite singer, Nelson. But they didn’t just meet — she was also lucky enough to get her guitar signed and a photo with the legend.

The little girl relies on music a great deal, especially every four months when she has operations to extend the rods in her back. Her next surgery is rapidly approaching, but now she’ll have memories of seeing her favorite singer, Willie Nelson, to help get her through. More pictures from the meeting are on Nelson’s official website.

The country icon is currently touring Krauss. The 35-city U.S. tour runs a few more days before the last stop in Toledo, Ohio. Isbell was on a portion of the tour along with folk trio the Devil Makes Three and Kacey Musgraves.
