After bringing Beto O'Rourke onstage during his Fourth of July Picnic this summer, Willie Nelson is doubling down on his support of the U.S. Senate candidate, headlining a rally and concert set for September 29 at Auditorium Shores.

Some conservative fans expressed outrage at Nelson's endorsement of the candidate, with many saying they would boycott his music and concerts. A press release put out by Nelson's publicist read, "My wife Annie and I have met and spoken with Beto and we share his concern for the directions things are headed..." The report was posted to Nelson's Facebook page on Thursday.

In the past, Nelson has played private benefit shows supporting individual politicians. Maybe you're not as big a fan of his as you pretend to be if y'all ever thought Willie was a Republican. "That smoke has finally got you!"

"Amy and I have had the wonderful opportunity to talk with Willie and Annie about the kind of future we want for our state when everything we care about is on the line", O'Rourke says.

'Relentless rains' continue as Florence almost stalls over Carolinas
In Wilmington , near where the eye of the storm touched down, trees and power lines were felled and many windows were broken. Florence was moving west-southwest at about 5 miles per hour (7 km/h), with its center located over eastern SC .

The move seems to have surprised and upset some of Nelson's fans - even though he has a long record as an activist on a range of liberal issues.

Other fans said those complaining were ignorant of who they supported.

"I have always known that Willie was a Democrat", another said. Tickets are free, but attendees will need to RSVP at O'Rourke's website.
