Several of the gossip rags have been trying to sell issues by claiming WILLIE NELSON is on death’s door . . . or deathly ill . . . or whatever.
They’re basing it on the shows he missed in November because of an undisclosed illness . . . plus the canceled concerts in January and February because of a bad cold. Also, he’s turning 84 next month, so there’s that.
Well, his publicist decided to clear the air so she went to the Associated Press and said, quote, “He’s perfectly fine.”
To drive the point home, she reminded everyone that he performed for over 75,000 people at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Saturday . . . and has done a series of shows in Texas and Florida over the past two months.
