Texas town getting makeover

CARL'S CORNER, Texas — Carl's Corner is getting a makeover, Willie Nelson-style.

The country music star is among a group of investors involved in a $5 million project to add hotels, a saloon and even a golf course to the Texas truck stop on Interstate 35 south of Dallas.

"We're looking at a Branson, Missouri, concept out here," said Carl Cornelius, a longtime Nelson friend who incorporated the town in 1986 so he could sell alcohol in an otherwise dry part of Hill County. He's been mayor ever since.

Nelson began selling biodiesel at the stop, which features giant dancing frogs on the roof, in 2004.
