Willie Nelson is changing his birthday concert on April 28th and will make it a charity concert for the victims of Wednesday’s fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.  Nelson grew up in Abbott, which is six miles away.

Nelson recently talked about playing in West as a kid, and wanting to do something to help.  The Charity concert will be on the 28th, at “The Backyard”, and other people are welcome to join in and make donations.

The iconic singer also made the announcement d in a video: “I’ll be there, and my son Lukas, my son Micah and daughters Paula and Amy.  We’ll all be there doing a benefit show now.  Until today, it was set up as a birthday show,” Nelson said.

“But since the West tragedy happened, we decided to start a benefit there and let other people join in.  If they want to donate to the West Volunteer Fire Department, they can do so.  That’s where our proceeds are going to go on that day.”

Check out Nelson’s announcement about the charity concert here.
