Where Are They Now Wednesday: Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks...

Where Are They Now Wednesday: Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks...
Posted April 30th, 2014 @ 5:06pm

Willie Nelson was presented with his Fifth Degree Black Belt in the art of Gong Kwon Yu Sul, a modern Korean martial arts system, on April 28 in Texas. "Really all my life Charles Atlas and Bruce Lee were on my mind," he told Men's Health last year. "It's a good form of exercise, especially as you get older. I went through school playing all kinds of sports ... then when I went to Nashville I got into some martial arts and kung fu. I liked it." The ceremony will take place at Master Martial Arts in Austin two days before his 81st birthday.

It's like father, like daughter for Willie Nelson and his daughter, Paula.
On Sunday -- yes, it was 4-20 -- Paula was busted for possession of less than two ounces of marijuana in Menard County, Texas.
She posted a photo of the bust on Facebook Tuesday (4/22) with the caption, "Strip, spread 'em, squat and cough...What a night."
Menard County Sheriff Buck Miller said of the arrest, "A traffic stop was executed and drugs were found."
Like her father, Paula fronts her own group, the Paula Nelson Band. She also joins him with an arrest for pot, but has some catching up to do. Willie was busted in Waco, Texas in 1994; St. Martin Parish, Louisiana in 2006; and in Sierra Blanca, Texas in 2010.

Garth Brooks has released more tickets for his shows at Ireland's Croke Park in July.
The additional tickets are for standing room and some freed-up seats for all five shows. No other person has filled that many seats at the venue -- which is the largest stadium in Europe -- with the exception of Pope Benedict.
The shows are set for July 25th through the 29th. Tickets for the additional seats go on sale May 2nd.
