On November, 6, 2007, Willie Nelson was presented with the BMI Icon award in Nashville, Tennessee.   Many artists appeared at the concert to sing, and pay tribute to Willie, and others sent in recorded messages.  Bono appeared by video, and said:

“When I was growing up and looking at America, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to be a cowboy or an Indian. “Then I saw Willie Nelson, and he was both.”
