Buffett Was Part of Best Lineup back in 1974

Willie Nelson 4th of July Picnic - 1974The Austin American-Statesman has an article that mentions Jimmy Buffett as being part of the best lineups for Willie Nelson’s annual 4th of July Picnic: “Tracking Willie’s whereabouts on July 4 through the years ain’t no picnic

Which picnic had the best lineup of musicians?

The 2003 picnic at Two Rivers Canyon Amphitheater is hard to beat, with the Dead, Neil Young, Shawn Colvin, Merle Haggard and Patty Griffin joining the picnic regulars and newcomers such as Pat Green, Cross Canadian Ragweed and Los Lonely Boys.

But the three-day College Station picnic in 1974 is even harder to beat, adding Bill Monroe, Floyd Tillman, Jimmy Buffet and Lefty Frizzell to a Who’s Who of Austin/Cosmic Cowboy/Outlaw musicians, including B.W. Stevenson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Doug Sahm, Michael Martin Murphy and Townes Van Zandt.
