Willie Nelson Opens Concert Theater in Texas
Willie Nelson is opening his own concert theater, Willie's Place, in September at Carl's Corner Truck Stop, located south of Dallas on I-35. Carl's Corner is the flagship filling station for BioWillie, his own blend of biodiesel fuel made from vegetable oils. The 850-seat concert room is described as a full-service, year-round live music venue." Carl Cornelius, Nelson's friend and business partner, says, "We wanted the truckers and travelers to have a chance to see live music. They can't get to the concerts in their big trucks. This is a place where they can come to see Willie and some of the stars they don't get to see on the road." Nelson will appear Sept. 26-27.
