Willie Nelson helps the victims of the West, Texas explosion

Help is on the way to victims in the town of West, Texas from country music icon Willie Nelson.

Hundreds of fans lined up for Nelson's 80th birthday concert at the "Backyard" in Austin.

The sold out show took on extra special meaning: all proceeds are going to the victims of the West, Texas Volunteer Fire Department.

Nelson grew up just a few miles north of West and said the people from there are his friends and neighbors.

Concert organizers arranged for two busloads of West, Texas residents to attend the concert.
