Willie Nelson to headline rally for Beto O'Rourke

By Michael Burke - 09/12/18 07:41 PM EDT
 

Country singer Willie Nelson will headline a rally for Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke (Texas) later this month as O’Rourke campaigns to unseat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) in the midterms.

“If we're going to win and elect Beto to the Senate, we need Texans to vote for him! And what’s more Texan than Willie Nelson? (Nothing!),” O’Rourke’s campaign wrote on an event page for the rally.

The rally is scheduled for Sept. 29 in Austin, Texas.

Good Corbe! Where can I buy tickets!

 ***guitar man****

I'm only kidding.

Willie's about 82, 84 or something... so while I don't agree with him, I have no ill feelings towards him... say, vs. the Dixie Chicks 10 years ago or so.  That riled a lot of people. Senator Cruz may well get some celebrities in his corner like George Strait I would think.

The problem with that is that most of the people who support Beto will not even know who Willie is. He is my father's generation (LOL) and that is saying a lot.

His fans want Cardi B or Post Malone. Even Eminem is too old now for the pop/rap scene.

All I a can say to Willie is, I hope he is planning a short set because the Beto crowd will not know any of his songs and they aren't going to stand his nasally whining for very long. Not a good fit.

In Texas?  Willie routinely does large sold-out shows.  Even outside of Texas.  I don't like the man personally but his music is loved by several generations.

Say versus George Strait? We can run the music industry stats if you like.  If Beto the Buffoon really wanted a Texas icon he'd get a real Texan. 

We here in Texas can see past that bull shit.

I'm not claiming he is better or more favored.  He does sell more concert tickets than George Strait.   Thinking Willie is a has-been is silly.

Man owns the North American record for concert attendance at one concert. (105.000)  I can fish out the Houston Livestock and Rodeo attendance data if you really want to make some comparisons.  Do you want to compare album sales, No.1's , etc.?

Maybe in the past, but the voting is not done in the past.  George Strait is great, but he quit touring in 2012.  He does a just few concerts in Vegas and Houston each year.  Willie is still on the road, again.

Point wasn't really who was bigger or whether Strait would campaign (and He won't ....he's quiet on the political front).  Deal is that Texans view Willie as an old washed up stoner, who politically only sings to his own choir.  He won't even tick the electoral meter here.

BTW....  as far as I am concerned he hasn't made anything over listenable since  Red Headed Stranger.

Willie Nelson got me to take a fresh look at "country music," around 1981; and I became a fan.

It was an album of Nelson, singing Kris Kristofferson (fellow Texan)  songs.

2018 Message #2 to Earth: US Rep Dana Rohrabaher, Reagan Republican is running on decriminalizing Weed.

2018 Message #3: US AG Jeff Session just might be the only person left in America, that doesn't favor some form of decriminalization, at minimum for medical uses.

OK,since you want to get pissy about this,how about include the songs that Willie wrote that were huge hits for other singers? People like Patsy Cline,for example?

I know next to nothing about George Strait,but I'm guessing Willie has written and sold more songs that were hits to other people than Strait.

Back when I was sitting under that tree, I wasn't much interested in who it was currently on the porch pickin and singin (there were several that went on to fame and fortune in latter years.). Wasn't payin all that much attention to politics either.  About all I was interested at the time was that cold brew in my hand and the good lookin thing sitting beside me.

Hypocrisy defined: Democrats consider an uncorroborated claim of a 35 year-old high-school incident as a matter serious enough to derail a SCOTUS nomination, but a 20 year-old police report with multiple witnesses of a drunk driving crash & attempt to flee that his Daddy's influence got him out of as nothing to consider in electing a U.S. senator.

The Democrat's cry about the unverified high-school story: "What if it was your daughter?"

My response: "What if your daughter was in the truck Beto crashed into?"
