"We’ll have some amazing Texas BBQ. We’ll be talking about the future of our great state. And at the end of the night, we’ll have a special performance by Willie," Davis said in a fundraising email.

Nelson is an outspoken proponent of legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage.

Earlier this campaign season Davis' Republican opponent in the race, Attorney General Greg Abbott, campaigned with conservative rock musician Ted Nugent.
