Willie Nelson Tour Suspended After Band Bus Crash

Country music legend Willie Nelson has suspended his current tour after a bus from his traveling party was involved in an accident. Nelson was not in the bus that crashed along Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, Texas but three members of his band were.

According to CNN, one member of the band, longtime drummer Robert Paul English, broke his hip while the other two sustained slight injuries after the bus "spun out of control in a storm and crashed into a Texas bridge pillar before dawn Saturday."

Willie Nelson was set to perform in Robinsonville, MS tonight and Jackson, MS tomorrow. Those two performances as well as November 26 and 27 performances in Fayetteville, AR and Lafayette, LA respectively have been marked "postponed-TBA" on Nelson's website.
