Platinum certification for one million albums sold didn't begin until 1976, so while other recordings may have soared past this sales mark, 'Wanted: The Outlaws' became the first official platinum album that year. The project featured Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter and it would eventually go on to be certified double platinum.
The legendary Willie Nelson may have endorsed Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson in the 2012 presidential race, but when it comes down to a choice between President Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, it looks like the entertainer has chosen to go with the incumbent president.

It's even better when I'm a huge fan of the person being honored, and that is going to be the case this Thursday night at the CMA Awards show on ABC. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will join Lady Antebellum and Blake Shelton in a long overdue tribute to legendary singer, songwriter and American icon Willie Nelson.
It's the end of the railroad. Fans who were eagerly awaiting to see Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson, along with Band of Horses and John C. Reilly, perform on the 2012 Railroad Revival Tour will surely be disappointed, as the tour has been canceled by its organizers.

Legendary country icon Randy Travis celebrated his 25th anniversary in country music by releasing a new C.D. called Anniversary Celebration. It's an album full of duets. He invited some of country musics biggest names to accompany him. I've heard it and I think it's one to have in the CD collection.
Last November, Willie Nelson was arrested after border control agents smelled a marijuana-like odor (surprise, surprise) coming out of the singer's tour bus, and then found the 77-year old in possession of six grams of the wacky tobacco.
