Willie Nelson says he has stopped smoking because it almost killed him

Willie Nelson arrives on the red carpet for the 56th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, January 26, 2014. The country music icon announced he is no longer smoking due to ongoing health and breathing issues.

It looks like Willie Nelson has Joe Biden on his mind.

The legendary country singer will join Robert Earl Keen at a Monday night virtual fundraiser to support the former VP's presidential bid.

Guests at the event will include two of Biden's former primary rivals -- former HUD Secretary Julián Castro and former Congressman Beto O'Rourke. Another famous Texan, Cecile Richards -- an abortion rights activist and daughter of Former Governor Ann Richards -- will also be there.

The tickets range from $250 to $100,000.
