Willie Nelson is looking to become dog's best friend.
The country music star has filmed a television spot supporting an anti-dogfighting bill that is moving through the Georgia Legislature.
In the ad, Nelson looks into the camera while "Georgia on My Mind" plays in the background.
"Dogfighting is against the law in Georgia, but the laws are so weak, the beautiful state of Georgia has become a haven for dogfighters from around the country," he says.
The bill would make it a felony for anyone to sell, trade or transport dogs for the purpose of dogfighting. Utah-based Best Friends Animal Society, a national animal welfare organization, produced the piece and asked Nelson to participate.
