80-year-old Willie Nelson will be receiving a fifth-degree black belt in the martial art of Gong Kwon Yu Sui. Nelson will be displaying this hidden talent at an Austin studio, just a couple days before he celebrates his 81st birthday.
Just this past weekend, Nelson received another impressive honor of a different nature. Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey had the pleasure of inducting Willie into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame. Austin City Limits is the longest-running music show in the U.S. and featured Nelson as the show’s first performer back in 1974.
