Willie Nelson’s ‘Luck Ranch’ Partially Destroyed by Storm
A significant portion of Willie Nelson’s “Luck, Texas” private ranch has been destroyed by tornado force winds that ripped through the area. Located just outside Austin, “Luck, Texas” was originally built on Nelson’s estate to serve as the setting for the film adaptation of the country singer’s classic 1975 album, Red Headed Stranger.
The makeshift town was subsequently preserved by Nelson, and in recent years it’s been the setting for the Heartbreak Banquet music festival during SXSW. A statement on the country star’s Facebook page reads: “Our beautiful Luck wasn’t so Lucky recently. Last week’s 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.”
