Country star Willie Nelson's Texas ranch has been partially destroyed by fierce winds. The singer/songwriter's home in Luck, just outside Austin, was hit by tornadoes. A message on Nelson's Facebook page reads: "Our beautiful Luck wasn't so Lucky recently. Last week's tornado force winds ripped several buildings apart, including the bank, the post office, and left World Headquarters holding on by a splinter. "We are happy to report no one was hurt and the church only had a few windows blown out. Some towns got it a lot worse, so we aren't complaining. Luck is a tough town. It can be rebuilt." Nelson built the ranch in the mid-1980s and used it as the base for his 1986 film Red Headed Stranger.
