There are many country music artists who are reeling from the recent tragic explosion in West, Texas at the West Fertilizer Co. It hits especially close to home for the iconic Willie Nelson, as the accident happened in a town six miles south of his hometown of Abbott, Texas. The legend taking action and turning his 80th birthday celebration into a benefit concert for the West Volunteer Fire Department.
Country music legend Willie Nelson is always up for a collaboration, but this one takes the cake. The 79-year-old music icon recently ran into Dave Mustaine -- the frontman for the thrash metal band Megadeth -- at a restaurant in Texas, leading to the metal guitarist suggest a guest appearance for Nelson on the group's upcoming album.
Willie Nelson may be approaching his 80th birthday, but he's still a spitfire with a whole lot to say -- and he's not afraid to speak his mind, especially when it's a cause he believes in. Nelson recently opened up on his views of the Supreme Court's consideration of gay rights and same-sex marriage, and he was his usual 'Shotgun Willie' self.
Willie Nelson continues to show everyone that life can get even more rewarding as the years fly by. He's one of country music's greatest 'Heroes,' and it's fitting that with all his success and accomplishments, Nelson will receive an honorary doctor of music degree from the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Willie Nelson is almost 80, but the country superstar will stay as relevant as ever with the release of 'Let's Face the Music and Dance,' a collection of one of the prolific entertainer's favorites. The project will include classics from a wide range of genres, including songs by Irving Berlin, Carl Perkins, Django Reinhardt and Spade Cooley.
Willie Nelson is one of the most prolific and celebrated songwriters of his generation, and a musical and cultural icon as well. The legendary country performer is set to reveal some new stories and insights into his life and music with the upcoming publication of Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From the Road, which he will release on November 13 through William Morrow.
Willie Nelson is one of the first country stars to comment on the Occupy Wall Street protests, and the legend is giving the demonstrations a big thumbs up. Nelson wrote a poem that could be titled ‘We’re the Ones With the 99,’ and along with his wife, recites it in the video below.
Even as rescue workers continue to battle the wildfires that have raged through Texas throughout September, organizers are putting together a benefit to help pay for some of the more than $250 million worth of damage the fires have left behind.
