WILLIE PROTESTS WAR IN NEW SONG

Willie Nelson's latest song, "Whatever Happened to Peace on Earth," speaks out against the war in Iraq, but the red-headed stranger says he's not afraid of possible criticism for his views. "I don't care if people say, 'Who the hell does he think he is?' I know who I am," Willie tells the Austin, Tx. American-Statesman newspaper. Willie is scheduled to sing the song live for the first time during the Jan. 3 fundraising concert for Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich in Austin.
