Thanks to Guthrie Thomas for sharing this photo of his election-year Willie Nelson guitar picks!  I love every version.

“Greetings,

Now, I say this every four years, “It would not surprise me in the least, Willie’s been there so many times he already has his own room and he is ready to tell the world exactly like it is, how it should be, and would be when Willie accepts the job.”

Designed by Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt and C.P. Vaughn.

Rest in Peace, Merle Haggard

django picks

“A very, very sad day…

Merle Haggard arrived at the gates of Heaven this morning. It is a sad day on earth and a great day in Heaven. These guitar picks were made for Merle and Willie’s “upcoming concerts” which were to begin in mid April. There were only 14 printed, 7 of each for review. The first says, Django and Jimmie, the second, Pancho and Lefty. They will never be printed again and they will be sent to Willie. I received the sad news from Budrock not an hour after Merle’s passing this morning. Today is also Merle’s birthday, April 6th, It is my understanding that Merle and Willie’s duo album, “Django and Jimmie,” was Merle’s last full length recording. Merle and Willie were close friends, and their duo album instantly reached the top of every country chart late last year.

Here’s to one of the last of the true and genuine country artist’s that will ever grace this earth. Rest in peace, Merle Haggard, rest in peace…”

“And, of course, Willie’s Luck Reunion in Luck, Texas at his ranch that Willie is hosting today and tomorrow most certainly requires a few guitar picks to play with. Designed by, Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt of The Family and a cowboy who knows how to ride a horse backwards but very little else…”

All proceeds from the evening, which includes a performance from Nelson himself, will benefit the nonprofit organization Wholesome Wave.

Country music icon and longtime American agriculture supporter Willie Nelson will be hosting a potluck with celebrity chefs at his private ranch near Austin on March 17.

The star-studded feast, which will feature a performance from Nelson himself, will benefit Wholesome Wave, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing Americans’ access to affordable food.

Chef Michel Nischan, the founder of Wholesome Wave and the 2015 winner of the James Beard Foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year award, is co-hosting the potluck alongside his longtime friend, Willie Nelson.

Chef Nischan will be joined by a team of celebrity chefs in charge of the meal, including Scott Conant (Corsair), Michael Chiarello (Bottega, Coqueta), Dean Fearing (Fearing’s), and John Mitchell (Luvo), for the dinner.

The menu, which will feature sustainably raised and sourced ingredients, and will include “Willie’s Chili” and several other Southern-inspired dishes. The potluck will feature ethically sourced meats from Fleisher’s Craft Butchery and spirits from Avion Tequila.

Tickets for the potluck are now available at $375 per guest, though a CharityBuzz auction for two tickets to the dinner, plus front-row seats to Nelson’s performance, is live as of February 4.
