Speaking of Willie Nelson, he's doing a rally for Beto

Willie Nelson Talks Beto O’Rourke and Why He Feels Sorry for Ted Cruz

The 85-year-old legend also sounds off on Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy and the first thing he’d do if he were President

“We’ve never had so much attention,” says Willie Nelson. He’s sitting on his bus, the Honeysuckle Rose, parked outside the Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Nelson, animated and full of laughs, is killing time hitting a weed pen and sipping coffee before performing “Summer Wind” from My Way, his moving new Sinatra tribute album. But the attention Nelson is referring to is his endorsement of Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke, who stands a real chance to unseat Ted Cruz in November. Nelson, 85, will play a rally for O’Rourke on September 29th at Austin’s Auditorium Shores.

You saw that picture of Willie posted a couple of days ago here on the Forum? Not hard to tell what side he is on.

I turned on the TV just in time to watch that. Go Willie! I got to hang out with Willie on the Honeysuckle Rose once, a fun time!

Strange how that Honeysuckle Rose just keeps coming back again and again.

All-time great movie, too.

The Honeysuckle Rose like Air Force One - whichever bus Willie is on is the Honeysuckle Rose.

Looks pretty good for a high-mileage 85 year old!
