Rolling Stone reports: "In Texas, there's a pretty good chance you'll see someone with a "Willie Nelson for President" bumper sticker, and it can sometimes seem like the singer is actually an elected official in his home state: There's a statue and street named in Nelson's honor in downtown Austin, and Willie T-shirts can be found in many tourist shops. In a recent interview on his tour bus for his new Rolling Stone cover story, Nelson, 81, opened up about some current events, including the recent population influx in his hometown of Austin (the city's population has grown almost 20 percent in the last decade). "Music had a lot to do with it," he says. "You can go to Austin any day and find good music all over the place. I know some people who are not that happy because it's getting so crowded and the keep moving further west. But you know, it's progress.""
