Willie Nelson (1933 - )

Willie Nelson (born April 30, 1933) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is widely regarded as one of the most beloved and notorious country music singers.

Nelson is listed on various websites as a 'famous vegetarian' - there are many references online about his work for animals and the environment, his support for vegetarian/vegan politicians (such as his friend Kinky Friedman and 2004 vegan presidential candidate Denis Kucinich), recording with veg*n musicians and he has artcles from veg*ns on his own website. But we have no direct evidence that he is, or ever was, vegetarian himself.
