“Band of brothers, and sisters, and whatever” — Willie Nelson

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

The title track from Willie Nelson’s new ‘Band of Brothers’ album could be a theme song for his motley group of players and friends. The singer has released a video for the song that showcases the crew having fun backstage and off stage. During this ToC video premiere, fans get a look at a more relaxed — almost silly — country music legend.

Much of the ‘Band of Brothers’ video is focused on a high-stakes game of dominoes that involves family, friends and actor Woody Harrelson. A few dollars get tossed around during the contest, and creative stop-motion camera work shows the game’s pieces turning into various characters, like a peace sign.

“We’re a band of brothers and sisters and whatever / On a mission to break all the rules / And I know you love me cause I love you too / But you can’t tell me what to do,” Nelson sings during the ‘Band of Brothers’ chorus. Poker and chess are also played, and one woman takes to skateboarding.

The new album — released on June 17 — features nine new songs co-written by Nelson. In total there are 14 tracks, including a cover of Vince Gill‘s ‘Whenever You Come Around’ and Billy Joe Shaver’s ‘The Git Go,’ a collaboration with Jamey Johnson. The album comes after the success of ‘To All the Girls,’ Nelson’s first Top 10 album in 30 years. The 80-year-old continues to tour and shows no signs of bringing his studio work to an end.

Annie Nelson, Kelly King interview about Pacific Biodiesel (and why we should care)

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Mrs green
Mrs. Green interviews Annie Nelson (yes, Annie Nelson of Team Willie & Annie Nelson) and Kelly King from Pacific Biodiesel

Kelly King and her husband Bob’s pioneering vision created American’s first biodiesel refinery in Maui in 1996. Pacific Biodiesel became the first private company to divert and refine thousands of tons of municipal grease trap waste and waste vegetable oil into clean-burning, premium biodiesel.

Years later, along came country music legend Willie and his wife Annie Nelson. They became very interested in the King’s vision of sustainable biodiesel and eventually they formed a strong partnership that exists to this day. Ready for this? In a very short time after that, Willie and his good friend Bill Mack would single-handedly use satellite radio to talk to truckers and farmers about biodiesel, and thus elevated the renewable fuel into mainstream recognition. Want to hear more? I know I do. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies
