AUSTIN—There is a new mural up in Downtown Austin, near 7th and Neches Streets, that is a tribute to Willie Nelson.
It was being painted by local musician and artist Wiley Ross, who said he has wanted to take on a project like this for a few years now. Finally, this year, everything came together.
The artwork faces the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless. So far, Ross says the mural has been well received. Willie Nelson's latest album was just released this week. "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin" is on sale now.
