On This Day…

September 13, 1980

U.S. President Jimmy Carter, a fan of Willie Nelson, invited the country singer to perform on the South Lawn of the White House. Rosalynn Carter even joined Nelson for a duet, singing Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother. Later that night, Nelson went on the roof of the White House where he lit up a “big fat Austin torpedo” (marijuana cigarette) and smoked it with Carter’s son.
President Carter claimed not to have known of Nelson’s after-hours activities.
