According to caustcast.org’s Top 10 Greenest Musicians list, Willie Nelson is the greenest country music star and 2nd greenest musician. Willie Nelson is said to have came up with BioWillie biodiesel fuel and the largest green truck stop in the United States. He also talks about eco-trucking on his XM radio show.
Another musician worth noting is country/pop music star Sheryl Crow. Sheryl Crow toured the United States in a biodiesel-powered bus, and spoke out against the former senior White House advisor Karl Rove when he dismissed the idea of global warming.
There are a lot of artists going green at this day and age but perhaps one who has truly been making waves is American country artist Willie Nelson. Willie Nelson is not only a musician, he has also gained attention from being a devoted activist. Media attention gained from his advocacy of marijuana as well as his arrest for possession of it is besides the point because just recently, his long-held dream of opening an alternative-fuel truck stop and entertainment destination has come true with the grand opening of Willie’s Place in Carl’s Corner, Texas.
Willie Nelson’s Eco-friendly complex includes a state-of-the-art eco-friendly theater called the “Earth Bio-Willie Theater.” As part of the opening festivities, Nelson performed on that stage along with Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel. “Willie’s Place is already pumping Bio-Willie fuels, which are refined on-site, giving truckers the chance to help the nation’s farmers, while also benefiting the environment…It features two restaurants (one smoking, one non-smoking), a poker room, full trucker amenities, and large-screen TVs throughout. The Earth Bio-Willie Theater has already hosted benefit concerts featuring Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Ray Wylie Hubbard and David Allan Coe.”
