Willie Nelson’s Ranch Damaged By Tornado Force Winds

Several buildings at Willie Nelson’s “Luck, Texas” ranch were damaged or destroyed by tornado force winds last week. Fortunately, no one at the private ranch—located just outside of Austin, TX—was hurt during the storm.

A statement posted on the country music legend’s Facebook page yesterday reads:

Our beautiful Luck wasnt so Lucky recently. Last weeks tornado force winds ripped several buildings apart, including the bank, the post office, and left World Headquarters holding on by a splinter. We are happy to report no one was hurt and the church only had a few windows blown out.Some towns got it a lot worse, so we aren’t complaining. Luck is a tough town. It can be rebuilt.

Luck, Texas was originally built to serve as a set for the 1986 film Red Headed Stranger, which was based on Nelson’s 1975 album of the same name.
