WILLIE'S NOT WAILING THE BLUES OVER TAXES

Don't cry for Willie Nelson.

The country star is busy organizing another fund-raising Farm Aid concert in Austin, Texas, on March 14 but says he doesn't need charity himself despite facing a $32 million federal tax bill."I'm fine, I'm healthy," Nelson said in an interview Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America." "I have my talent. I have my guitar. I got my band and I'm still making good money on the road, drawing good crowds. I don't need people's pity. I'm a guitar player, ex-cotton picker from Hill County, Texas, and to be into the government for $32 million is sort of hilarious."
