Willie Nelson Concert Proceeds to Benefit West, Texas

Willie Nelson’s Previously Scheduled Show In Austin Now to Benefit West, Texas.

Following the tragic and deadly fire and subsequent explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas that has impacted the entire community in the area, Willie Nelson has reworked his already scheduled April 28th Austin, TX show into a benefit concert. All proceeds will go to help West Volunteer Fire Department now dealing with the aftermath of this week’s events. The announcement was originally made via Twitter, and then later posted on Nelson’s website along with an interview featured on Texas Monthly.

Willie, a Texas native, actually grew up very close to the West community, and tweeted his condolences after the news broke.

It never ceases to amaze me how some folks are so ready to provide aid when it is needed, and Nelson has yet again earned my respect by practicing what he preaches! Amidst a week full of pain and loss, our hearts are with everyone in West, TX.
