"My wife, Annie, and I have met and spoken with Beto, and we share his concern for the direction things are headed", Nelson said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is set to take the debate stage against his Democrat challenger a number of times leading up to November.

A free Willie Nelson concert in the heart of the Lone Star State seems like something that would attract fans of all political stripes, but there's a good chance the September 29 event will feature a largely left-leaning crowd. Him headlining a rally for Beto O'Rourke is a much bigger deal than your typical celebrity endorsement.

O'Rourke made headlines when he appeared onstage with Nelson at the icon's annual 4th of July picnic in 2018, joining Nelson's band onstage to play guitar and sing during the closing medley.

From campaigning to legalize marijuana to supporting the LGBT movement, Nelson has scarcely hidden his progressive credentials during his long career. A crowd of about 1,700 people is expected at the Good Street Baptist Church at 6:00 p.m. An initial report of Leon Bridges being on the bill is unconfirmed, Nelson's publicist said Wednesday evening.

"Goodbye Willie.You would pick a socialist agenda and an Anti-American fellow like Beto, shame on you", added another. Maybe you're not as big a fan of his as you pretend to be if y'all ever thought Willie was a Republican.
