On October 24, 2008, Willie Nelson performed at Lance Armstrong fundraiser in Austin. Photos thanks to: http://www.supertouchart.com.
Brian Dowd, cancer survivor, was at the event, and posted at his blog http://canceradvocacy.blogspot.com:
“After the guest speakers we then made our way out side to sit on bails of hay and listen to country music legend Willie Nelson. All I can say is WOW! Willie blew everyone away and I think converted a few people who were not into country music.
After Willie finished his set Lance came on stage to thank Willie and his band for performing and there was a funny moment. Lance said he could not go on Willie’s bus b/c he has a new job (i.e. back to cycling) which made everyone laugh.”
