Willie Nelson 's private Luck, Texas ranch was heavily damaged when tornado-force winds ripped through the spread last week. According to a post on Willie's Facebook page , the bank and post office were destroyed, and the World Headquarters in Luck was "holding on by a splinter." Several photos of the damage were posted on Willie's page, too.

The post continues, "Some towns got it a lot worse, so we ain't complaining. Luck is a tough town. It can be rebuilt."

Willie built the town of Luck on his ranch outside Austin, Texas in the 1980s for the set to his film Red Headed Stranger . He kept it standing after filming and has hosted the Heartbreaker Banquet there during South by Southwest since 2012.

Of note, Willie's new album, Band of Brothers , is now in stores featuring nine original songs and five other songs, including a cover of Vince Gill 's "Whenever You Come Around."
