Don’t Mess With Texas (Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson)

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016

www.khou.com
by: Kevin Reece

The “Don’t Mess with Texas” anti-litter campaign is one of the most recognized slogans in the Lone Star State.

But after 30 years, the Texas Department of Transportation believed the campaign needed a reboot for a new generation. So the original 1986 pitchman, one Mr. Willie Nelson of Abbott, Texas, makes way for his son.

Nelson was the original voice of the campaign, seated on a stool in the middle of a rural Texas highway, singing a re-written version of his “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys.” Research shows Nelson’s star power, and that of subsequent Texas artists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lyle Lovett and others actually worked. Surveys showed 98 percent of Texans knew the slogan, recognized the problem, and litter rates did start going down.

But 30 years later, and with a population that increases by the day, Texas is still plagued with an estimated 500 million pieces of roadside litter a year. People ages 16 to 34 are considered the most common culprits. So when TxDOT needed a new voice for the next generation, they just called the Nelson family again.

This time, in public service announcements that have already started running on KHOU and other TV stations across the state, Willie Nelson’s son, and a successful musician in his own right, Lukas Nelson, was seated on a stool on that same yellow stripe in the middle of a bend in the same rural Texas highway to be the “Don’t Mess With Texas” troubadour for his generation.

“To be able to do this and follow them is a huge honor, and I’m happy to be able to spread the message ‘Don’t Mess with Texas,’” Lukas Nelson said of the original stable of artists.

The new campaign also includes the Eli Young Band and Grupo Fantasma.

The hope is that one of the most recognized slogans in Texas history will remain part of the mindset for a new generation. So whether it’s Willie or Lukas Nelson sitting and singing on that road again, that you will pay attention and help keep Texas roads clean.

Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow to headline Outlaw Festival in Scranton, PA (Sept. 18, 2016)

Outlaws never die; they just headline new music festivals. On Sunday, September 18th, the inaugural Outlaw Music Festival gets underway in Scranton, Pennsylvania, with preeminent rebels Willie Nelson and Neil Young topping the bill.

A daylong celebration of artists who go against the grain, the concert also features Lee Ann Womack, Brothers Osborne, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Sheryl Crow, with more performers to be announced at a later date. As usual, Nelson will be joined by his Family Band, while Young is backed by Promise of the Real, featuring Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah Nelson. The group has been supporting Young throughout his summer tour.

The Outlaw Music Festival will be held at the Pavilion on Montage Mountain, a site that has become a destination for music fans throughout the Northeast. Since 2012, it’s hosted the Peach Music Festival, the Allman Brothers Band’s annual gathering. This year’s Peach, featuring Gregg Allman, will be held August 11th through 14th. Nelson headlined last year’s event.

The outlaw-country genre remains one of the most popular — and profitable. On February 26, 2017, the second Outlaw Country Cruise, with Blackberry Smoke, the Mavericks, Shooter Jennings and Steve Earle, will depart Tampa for Cozumel.

Tickets for the inaugural Outlaw Music Festival go on sale Friday, July 29th.

Neil Young held an onstage family reunion Friday night during his concert in Rome as Willie Nelsonjoined the rocker and Promise of the Real, which features Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah.

It’s family time here tonight, we’re gonna have the whole family come out,” Young told the crowd as he introduced Willie Nelson. “What do you say, pop?” Nelson soon strapped on a guitar and joined Young and his sons on Old Ways‘ “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?,” a track Nelson and Young have played together in the past. Nelson stuck around for one more song, leading his classic “On the Road Again” alongside Young and Promise of the Real.

Nelson’s appearance onstage wasn’t a complete surprise as, earlier in the day, Lukas Nelson revealed on Instagram that Willie sat in with the band during rehearsals at the Temre Di Caracalla venue. Following Friday’s concert, Lukas Nelson wrote, “Dad joined us tonight in Rome. To be able to support my two heroes together on stage with my brothers is a joy that is indescribable.”
