Willie Nelson and Hard Rock Intl. launch merchandise program to benefit Sustainable Biodiesel AllianceSunday, May 5th, 2013
Willie Nelson and Hard Rock International announced the launch of the limited-edition Willie Nelson Artist Spotlight merchandise program, benefiting the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance and Animal Welfare Institute. The line, a partnership between the musician, activist, author and poet and the world-renowned brand, includes a men’s t-shirt, a limited edition collector pin as well as an online exclusive pin and, fittingly, a bandanna that will be available online and in-store at participating locations on June 6.
Hard Rock International is excited to join in the ongoing festivities for the beloved musician and look forward to welcoming Willie and his Family Band for a celebration launch event at Hard Rock Cafe New York on June 6.
“Willie Nelson is an American treasure and one of the most prolific, inspiring and enduring musicians of our time,” said Annie Balliro, senior director of brand philanthropy at Hard Rock International. “Willie’s love of all people, his tireless philanthropic work for a better planet, a kinder world for all creatures and beings, aligns perfectly with our own motto, Love All – Serve All. We could not be more proud to partner with Willie for these important causes on this significant and happy day, his 80th birthday.”
A portion of the retail price will benefit both the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, which advocates for creating a better world through sustainable, community-based biodiesel, and the Animal Welfare Institute dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people and seeking better treatment of animals everywhere—in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home and in the wild.
Hard Rock’s Willie Nelson Artist Spotlight t-shirt, pin and bandanna will be available online at www.hardrock.com and at Hard Rock locations in the following cities: New York, New Orleans, Maui, San Antonio, Nashville and Houston.

The Artists Spotlight Series is among the series of events and releases celebrating the artists 80th birthday. On April 16 Legacy Recordings released “Let’s Face the Music and Dance,” a collection of new studio performances by Willie Nelson and Family. 2013 is shaping up as a banner year for the pop country patriarch, who turned 80 April 29. His rollicking memoir, “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die – Musings from the Road,” published by HarperCollins in May 2012, is currently a New York Times bestselling nonfiction title and “Let’s Face The Music And Dance” is an essential addition to the outlaw country artist’s catalog of timeless recordings.

This jacket was worn by the character “Jake Pierson,” portrayed by Willie Nelson, in the classic television series, “Miami Vice.” The tailored “Neiman Marcus” brand jacket is made of a mint green slubbed silk. Mr. Nelson can be seen wearing the jacket in “El Viejo” (Season 3, Episode 7). In this particular episode, he plays a cantankerous old man who Crockett (Don Johnson) and Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) suspects as being in business with a murderous Bolivian drug dealer. Nelson wears the jacket throughout much of the episode as it is revealed to Crockett and Tubbs that he is really an ex-Texas Ranger looking to shut down the drug dealer’s business. The jacket can also be seen worn in “Hard Knocks (Season 5, Episode 8) by Ismael Carlo, as the character “Chi-Chi”. The jacket is in distressed vintage condition with some holes and scuffing due to age and use on production. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity.
