Willie & Annie Nelson Win Award

Willie & AnnieWillie Nelson and his wife Annie received an “Eye On Biodiesel Award” from the National Biodiesel Board this morning. Later, I was able to interview both of them during his big media event at the Pearson Ford Fuel Depot where they announced that they would begin selling “Bio-Willie.”

You can listen to my interview with Willie and Annie here: Willie & Annie Nelson Interview (2:00 min. MP3 File)

It’s always nice to see what’s going on too. I’ve got a short video clip of Willie on stage at the fuel pump promotion: BioWillie Pump Promotion (:39 wmv file)

They had a band which I assume was Willie’s band playing before and after the press conference at Pearson Ford Fuel Depot. You can listen to a song they wrote about Willie buying the Carl’s Corner fuel station in Texas here: Song About Willie (2:51 min. MP3 File)

    Willie, I was raised on a farm/ranch near
    Turkey, Texas and I think it is so important to seek alternative fuel. If we can do that in addition to exploring our own resources, that will help us to become independent of other countries for fuel. You and your wife, Annie are doing a wonderful thing.

    P.S. Saw you at the Meyerson in Dallas a few weeks ago, you were as sensational as ever, You are not afraid to try new venues – you have nothing to prove my friend, The world is a better place with you in it. Congratulations for all the honors you have received in past years as well as recently.
    Incidentally, I mentioned I lived on a ranch outside of Turkey, Texas. My mother was a ranch manager for her step-father and Bob Wills was a barber at that time and always trimmed their hair and usually play a fiddle tune. Bob Wills day is the last week-end in April and since Turkey is a hamlet of 483 people number around 12,000 from foreign countries as well as all around the country. It is a great big party honoring Bob. Quite a sight for such a small village. They arrive in every form of transportation you could imagine.
