WAITE PARK -- Willie Nelson was the third national act to take the stage at The Ledge Amphitheater in Waite Park this week.  He performed there on Friday night.

The reason why you, and pretty much everyone else, didn't know about it was that it was a private invite-only event.

Waite Park City Administrator Shaunna Johnson confirms that Nelson was in town playing for a private event put on by an organization called Pilot Games.
