This makes me angry.
Someone stole a stuffed armadillo which is a lucky charm of sorts for Willie and his band. How does anyone knowingly steal from Willie Nelson?

Yeah they're should have been better security. Part of what makes me angry is this person who clearly didn't belong backstage now will cause every security person to look suspiciously at every person who belongs backstage and make it harder for them to do their jobs, especially people like me.
OK, I did take a few guitar picks recently but I don't think they've put out an APB for me yet.
When I did an intro for Willie back in July I was shocked at how close I was allowed to get to his famous and beloved guitar on the left, Trigger. Willie says he wants to be buried with it someday. I wanted to touch it but I was so scared that it might fall or go out of tune I settled for a picture.
Anyway, if you see the armadillo, Willie's looking for it.
