Willie Nelson Reopening Willie's Place
Willie's Place, an alternative fuel truck stop and entertainment hub, will celebrate its grand reopening with a weeklong series of concerts beginning July 1. Located in Carl's Corner, Texas, a community located 40 miles north of Waco, the newly-designed and renovated Earth Bio-Willie Theater is named for Willie Nelson's brand of renewable bio-diesel. Ray Wylie Hubbard and David Allan Coe will perform all week, beginning July 1. Nelson will headline an all-day show on July 3 with Ray Price, Merle Haggard, Hubbard, Coe and others as a benefit for the Freddy Powers Parkinson's Foundation. Haggard, Price and Coe will join Nelson at his annual Fourth of July Picnic. This year's event is taking place at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Selma, Texas, near San Antonio.
