Willie and family have so far committed $3,500 to build a solar barn.
Temperatures are already plummeting in North Dakota, and adequate housing is absolutely critical to shelter the Water Protectors through the winter.
Bold Alliance is taking action to support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and allies at the Oceti Sakowin camps that are holding the line to protect our land, water and climate from the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Bold is raising $35,000 to build 30 tiny solar-powered barns on the Standing Rock land set aside for winter camping. We’ve already raised over $20,000, more than halfway to our goal — Thank you!
The tiny barns will be mobile — so they may be utilized in the future by the Standing Rock tribe, and transported to support Pipeline Fighters on the frontlines in other states.
Bold Alliance continues to stand with Standing Rock and landowners in Iowa fighting Dakota Access.
Thanks to the Nelson family, and to all the Water Protectors standing with Standing Rock and Iowa landowners fighting Dakota Access.

Country music icon Willie Nelson has been married four times— Martha Matthews (1952-1962), Shirley Collie (1963-1971), Connie Koepke (1971-1988), and Annie D’Angelo (1991-present)— and has fathered a total of seven children. Though his first three marriages have ended in divorce, his fourth and current wife, Ann Marie D’Angelo aka Annie, has proven to be his rock through multiple drug arrests and health issues.
The couple met when Annie was working as a makeup artist on the set of his 1986 film Stagecoach. The pair got hitched on September 16, 1991, at St. Alouin Church in Nashville, Tennessee and have two sons together, Lukas Autry and Jacob Micah.
Like most couples, Willie and Annie enjoy spending time together and especially love exploring the great outdoors surrounding their Maui, Hawaii home, which is nestled in largely self-sustaining community that is also home to Kris Kristofferson. They also frequent their ranch near Austin, Texas.
As he has gotten older, Nelson has admitted that his abilities as a husband have gotten stronger over the years, “You get older, you get wiser.” The country legend also claims that the biggest lessons he’s learned about a lasting relationship have actually spawned from his string of divorces.
We wish Willie and Annie many more years of wedded bliss!

Willie Nelson will be the first country music artist to receive the prestigious Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. The iconic songwriter and performer will be celebrated at an invitation-only gala on November 18th in Washington, D.C. Among those paying tribute to the 82-year-old musician are Rosanne Cash, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Raul Malo of the Mavericks, Neil Young and Promise of the Real, the band featuring Nelson’s son, Lukas. Also appearing will be Edie Brickell, Leon Bridges, Ana Gabriel, Paul Simon and Buckwheat Zydeco.
Taking place at DAR Constitution Hall in the nation’s capital, the tribute concert will air on PBS stations January 15th, 2016, at 9:00 p.m. ET and will be broadcast at a later date via the American Forces Network to U.S. Department of Defense locations around the world.
The Gershwin Prize was created in 2007, and named after brothers George and Ira Gershwin, whose contributions to popular American music include numerous standards such as “Someone to Watch Over Me,” which Nelson recorded on his landmark 1978 LP, Stardust. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame earlier this year. This year marks the 60th anniversary of Nelson’s first-ever recordings, as a 12-year-old in his hometown of Abbott, Texas.
According to the official description on the Library of Congress website, the Gershwin Prize “celebrates the work of an artist whose career reflects lifetime achievement in promoting song as a vehicle of musical expression and cultural understanding.”
