Country legend Willie Nelson is set to open his very own concert venue in Dallas, Texas.

Willie's Place will open its doors next month (SEP05) at Carl's Corner Truck Stop - the flagship filling station for Nelson's new blend of bio-diesel fuel made from vegetable oils, BioWillie.

The 850-seat theatre will be run by Nelson's longtime business partner CARL CORNELIUS, who insists the venue will offer truckers the chance to see top names on their travels.

He says, "We wanted the truckers and travellers to have a chance to see live music. They can't get to the concerts in their big trucks. This is a place where they can come to see Willie and some of the stars they don't get to see on the road."

Nelson will appear there on 26 and 27 September (05).
