Willie Nelson is going to creative lengths to mark his favorite unofficial holiday while in self-isolation.
The country music icon will host a livestreamed variety show, “Come and Toke It,” on Monday in honor of 4/20, or “Weed Day.” The “cannabis-centric music, food, education and comedy” event will feature appearances by a host of stars, including Kacey Musgraves, Matthew McConaughey, Jeff Bridges and Billy Ray Cyrus, among others.
Fittingly, the event will kick off at 4:20 p.m. Central time, and run for exactly four hours and 20 minutes. Proceeds will benefit the Last Prisoner Project, a Colorado-based nonprofit that advocates for the decriminalization of marijuana.
Nelson, 86, announced the event on his Instagram on Saturday.
Last week, the weed enthusiast wished fans a happy 4/20 in a quirky video.
“Y’all have a hit for me,” he said in the clip, “and pass it on.”
In 2015, Nelson launched Willie’s Reserve, his personally curated line of marijuana.
He’s often quipped about staying high “pretty much all the time,” even as he’s maintained a grueling performance schedule. He’d originally been slated to kick off his Club Luck Tour on April
