According to the journalstar.com, Willie Nelson has turned down the opportunity to have a road named after him: "A state legislator had proposed naming a stretch of Texas Highway 130, part of the Central Texas Turnpike Project, in honor of the 72-year-old country music legend. But a lawyer for Nelson said the singer-guitarist 'simply does not feel that the naming of a toll road in his honor comports with his world view on either a personal or an artistic level.'" And yet he will be in "The Dukes of Hazzard." Actually, that makes sense.
