Willie Nelson accidently outed himself as an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency at a concert at the Willie Nelson Theater, at Carl’s Corner, Texas last month. Nelson, who had been at a CIA staff meeting before coming to the show, forgot to remove his hat when he took the stage.
A Pentagon Employee, who did not want to be named, reports that Nelson was recruited to work for the CIA while a student at Baylor University. Now, after fifty years with the agency, Nelson has been forced to step down. When asked what he would do now that he could no longer be a spy, Nelson said, “I’m going to concentrate on my music career.”
