Willie Nelson’s website has announced that on 4/20/2012, at 4:20 p.m.,. Willie Nelson will be honored with the unveiling of his statue in Austin, Texas, on Willie Nelson Boulevard.

The days are getting nearer to 4/20 at 4:20pm, the day and time of the official unveiling of the statue in downtown Austin of our hero, Willie Nelson.

We are so happy and excited about the event. It’s not everyday a city, the capitol of Texas no less, puts up a huge statue of your Dad. You can be sure that all of us here at Willienelson.com will be there to cover it. In the meantime, you can get a quick glimpse of the statue being made in this video.
