Willie Nelson and members of his family have recorded a version of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," with proceeds designated to protecting wild and domestic horses. The track is available on the Animal Welfare Institute website, as well as iTunes. Nelson believes the Bureau of Land Management is rounding up and removing horses from public land, rather than protecting them under a 1971 law. The recording also includes his children Paula, Lukas, Amy, Micah and Susie Nelson, along with several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown Tour 2011 passes through Nashville on Friday, June 3rd, 2011(The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel), and through Orange Beach, AL on Sunday, June 5th(The Amphitheater at The Wharf) . Willie Nelson, along with Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Craig Campbell, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real will play a multi-stage one-day concert.
