The Outlaw Music Festival Tour kicked off earlier this month with shows in Dallas, Texas, and Rogers, Arkansas, before winding its way to Detroit this weekend for the third stop of the tour. The eclectic lineup varies from city to city, with two constants: Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow. Both delivered crowd-pleasing sets Saturday night at the Joe Louis Arena, illustrating the scope of what it means to be a musical “outlaw.” Jason Isbell, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Bob Dylan – making the first of only two appearances on the tour – were also on the bill. Here’s 10 photos that capture the wild spirit of the Outlaw Music Fest. (All photos by Jordan O’Donnell.)
