Willie Nelson brought Texas to Maui this past week, when he headlined the 7th annual Maui Music Festival on Nov. 24. His sons’ band, 40 Points, Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers, and reggae star Marty Dread shared the stage with the country legend for what was described as “an intimate” show at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater. But the real party was back at his house outside the hippie surf town of Pai’a on the island’s northern coast. That’s where Austin friends Owen Wilson, on the mend from his reported suicide attempt, his brother Luke Wilson, and local fixture Woody Harrelson joined Nelson for one of his infamous late-night poker games. (Owen and Woody, along with Jessica Simpson, also appear in Nelson’s music video for the song “You Don’t Think I’m Funny Anymore.”) No word yet on who won the round of Texas Hold ‘Em.
