Willie Nelson raises $120,000 for West


Town leaders from West, Texas, and neighboring Abbott were all smiles Monday afternoon as a representative for country music star Willie Nelson gave donated checks totaling more than $120,000.
Most of the money was raised at a benefit birthday concert Nelson hosted a few weeks ago in Austin.
More than $80,000 was donated to the West Volunteer Fire Department.
Abbott got more than $40,000, some of which will be used to help buy a new truck they lost in the explosion of the April 17 fertilizer plant fire. Abbott is known as the birthplace of Willie Nelson.
West Volunteer Fire Chief George Nors Sr. was also on hand after finally being released from the hospital.
