In honor of the milestone celebration, the country singer and Hard Rock International announced the launch of the limited-edition Willie Nelson Artist Spotlight merchandise program, benefiting the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance and Animal Welfare Institute. The line, a partnership between the musician, activist, author and poet and the world-renowned brand, includes a men's t-shirt, a limited edition collector pin as well as an online exclusive pin and, fittingly, a bandanna that will be available online and in-store at participating locations on June 6, 2013.
Sadly, there is no Willie Nelson-branded hairbrush or hair ties!
Hard Rock International is also joining the ongoing festivities for the beloved musician and looks forward to welcoming Willie and his Family Band for a celebration launch event at Hard Rock Cafe New York on June 6, 2013.
A portion of the retail price of the merch items will benefit both the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, which advocates for creating a better world through sustainable, community-based biodiesel and the Animal Welfare Institute dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people and seeking better treatment of animals everywhere – in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home and in the wild.
Hard Rock's Willie Nelson Artist Spotlight t-shirt, pin and bandana will be available online at www.hardrock.com and at Hard Rock locations in the following cities: New York, New Orleans, Maui, San Antonio, Nashville and Houston
