Willie Nelson is many things, and one of which is him being a kind-hearted person. He has achieved a lot in his life, from trying to sell his music to finally signing a record deal. Moreover, he promotes the legalization of marijuana and continues to create music every day in his life. Recently, he released his 69th album Ride Me Back Home. The lead single of the album was inspired from one of his horses.
Here’s a song from Nelson’s latest album.
Willie Nelson Saved the Lives of 70 Horses
Nelson, 86, apparently saved the lives of 70 horses. Isn’t that incredible? The horses were about to be butchered, but Nelson took all of them and housed them in his 700-acre ranch in Texas Hill Country. On an interview with ABC KSAT 12, he shared how lucky his horses are.
“My horses are probably the luckiest horses in the world,” Nelson said. “They get hand-fed twice a day, and they were just ready to go to slaughter is probably the last thing they remembered, so they’re happy horses.”
Bless Nelson’s soul for being such a nice person. These days, people don’t stop to take a look at animals with passion and love. Sometimes, we only look at them as a means of entertainment or food, but there are some people out there who have the heart to love and care for them. Thank goodness there are still people out there like Nelson who saved the lives of these innocent horses.
Aside from saving horses, Nelson also wrote to the United States Senate to ban the killing of horses.
You’re in Luck
Nelson has also shared that when he is not busy writing songs or touring, he often spends his time at his ranch. Funny thing that he named his ranch Luck. Why Luck?
“When you’re here, you’re in Luck, and when you’re not, you’re out of Luck.”
Now that’s a funny but genius way to name a ranch, don’t you agree, folks?
Since Nelson just released his latest album, we are to expect some tours from this amazing and kindred souled artist. Let us support people who know how to care for those who are in need. You can check his website for tour dates and to purchase tickets.
