Yesterday Willie Nelson hosted a virtual variety hour. Many celebrities popped in from their homes to wish Willie Nelson a happy birthday, including Matthew McConaughey. Willie will turn 87 on April 29th. The broadcast was meant to celebrate the unofficial weed holiday of 4/20 and benefit the Last Prisoner Project.
The broadcast had several technical difficulties, which Willie’s son Lukas blamed on “his highness.” Willie also admitted they didn’t know what they were doing. Either way, fans were happy to check in on Willie, his family, and friends during the broadcast.
