Willie Nelson is supporting Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke in the Texas Senate race, and now some former fans are no longer singing his praises. The music legend announced on Wednesday that he'd be headlining a Sept. 29 rally in Austin for O'Rourke, and Nelson made a point to mention that it will be the first public concert he has held for a political candidate, according to Austin360.com.
After posting the news of the upcoming rally on his Facebook page, some of Nelson's fans were upset others were glad:"My wife Annie and I have met and spoken with Beto and we share his concern for the direction things are headed," Nelson said in the press release.
