Willie Nelson just clocked another mile on his 82 year-long road as an artist and activist.

In addition to being a great American singer-songwriter, Nelson has also made a name for himself as a political activist - taking up pet causes such as: family farming, renewable energy, animal rights, LGBT rights, and marijuana legalization. Over the years, this musical legend has contributed over half a million dollars to political causes and candidates including the Texas Victory Fund, Congressman Dennis Kucinich and Jack Carter, son of President Jimmy Carter.

Cheers to you Willie, and beers for your horses!
