Railroad Revival Tour Derailed
Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson train trek canceled.
Organizers have abruptly canceled the second annual Railroad Revival Tour, an eight-city concert trek—via train car—that was set to feature Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson, among others.
A statement on the tour’s website read in part: “It is with extreme regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2012 Railroad Revival Tour. The decision to do so was a difficult one, but it was determined that certain complications would not permit us to host the shows in the manner intended, and that the bands and fans deserved.”
While fans may no doubt be disappointed, the cancellation may be good news for Jamey Johnson’s dog. “I have a dog that may or may not survive the train,” Jamey told Country Weekly recently, prior to the tour’s derailment. “He’s flown before and has ridden on the bus a whole lot, but I’ve never tried him on a train before.”
