    Texas native Willie Nelson is being honored with his own, personalized bronze sculpture. The statue will be unveiled in Austin, Texas on April 20, at exactly 4:20 PM CT. Note the time there, weed fans. The statue is a gift to the city from the non-profit group Capital Area Statues.

    Sculptor Clete Shields created the eight-foot tall rendering, which weighs a ton. Literally. It weighs that much.

    It's not lost on us that it is being unveiled on 4/20 at 4:20, since Nelson is a vocal proponent of marijuana.

    Will you visit the Willie Nelson statue next time you are in Austin, Texas? Would you make a pilgrimage to see it?
