Country music legend Willie Nelson is having a bit of legal trouble in the form of a misdemeanor drugs possession charge, but it looks lie he may sing his way out of jail time with an in-court performance.
Apparently the prosecutor in the case is a Willie Nelson fan himself, and has agreed to reduce the sentence he’s seeking for Nelson to a $100 fine rather than 180 days in jail. Â The catch? Â Nelson has to sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” during the court proceedings. Â No word yet as to whether the judge overseeing the case will allow such a deal to take place, but it would be awesome if it worked out that way.
