Willie Nelson and Neil Young are planning to hold a protest concert in a Nebraska cornfield. The September 27 concert near Neligh, Nebraska, is organized by opponents of a proposed pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast. The cornfield is in the path of the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline.

Critics say the plan could contaminate groundwater and contribute to pollution. TransCanada says the pipeline will have upgraded safety measures.

Willie Nelson’s ‘Band of Brothers’ Makes Highest Career Debut Since 1982

willie-nelson-band-of-brothers

Band of Brothers, the new Willie Nelson studio album, is entering the Billboard 200 best-selling albums chart at #5, marking Willie’s highest debut and highest position on America’s popular albums chart since Always On My Mind peaked there for four weeks at #2 in 1982.

Willie’s latest is also debuting at #1 on the Billboard Country chart, making Band of Brothers his first #1 Country album since The Promiseland hit the top slot in 1986.

With Band of Brothers sitting high on the nation’s Pop and Country charts, Natural Renegade, a Willie Nelson retrospective collection originally released in 2007, has also returned to the charts, coming in at #7 on the Top Catalog albums chart.

Willie’s second Top 10 album in less than a year–its predecessor, To All The Girls…, entered the Billboard 200 at #9 (and the Country chart at #2) in October 2013–Band of Brothers premieres 14 studio tracks including nine brand-new songs composed by America’s quintessential pop/country songwriter. Willie’s first album of predominately newly-written original material since 1996′s Spirit album, Band of Brothers is already drawing praise from music press and fans alike as a welcome return-to-form from the master tunesmith.

All 14 tracks on Band of Brothers are new recordings and none of the songs have been previously recorded by Willie Nelson.
