Willie Nelson Turns Texas Show Into Fundraiser

Proceeds to go to West Volunteer Fire Department.

Willie Nelson's April 28 show in Austin will now be a fundraiser for the folks in nearby West, Texas, which is still reeling from deadly explosions at a fertilizer plant.

“West is just a few miles from my hometown of Abbott. I was born and raised here and it was my backyard growing up,” Willie posted on his website.

“This is my community. These friends and neighbors have always been and are still a part of my life. My heart is praying for the community that we call home.”

The proceeds from the show will benefit the West Volunteer Fire Department.
