Since 1973, it has been a tradition for hit American musician Willie Nelson to host the celebration of the 4th of July with a summer concert. However, due to the outbreak from the pandemic, Nelson had to postpone the annual hosting for 2020. Last year, with covid cases decreasing, Nelson adapted the “picnic” to online. This was most convenient for fans, as those who were cautious of the virus still got a chance to witness Nelson and his gang playing hits in a studio. Though, many were bummed that they couldn’t get to see their idol in person, especially after the cancellation of shows due to the pandemic.
