Congratulations to Ben Dorcy on his induction into the Bandera Country Music Hall of Fame.  He’s not just the oldest roadie. He’s the best.  And he was the first.  With 64 years on the road and counting, Ben has become a living legend.  Countless  stars would not have shined without him.   I’m happy to see that he’s being officially recognized by the great city of Bandera, TX.   We love you Ben. -Willie Nelson
