Country music legend Willie Nelson has turned down Roseanne Barr’s offer to be her Presidential running mate.

Earlier this year, Barr – who found fame with her 1990’s sitcom Roseanne – filed the official documents needed to become the Green Party’s nominee for President. On her Twitter account, Twitter.com/therealroseanne, she recently stated: “My Vice President will be announced at the debate in San Francisco this Saturday. I want Willie Nelson as Vice President.”

Nelson responded to Barr yesterday (May 8), via Twitter.com/willienelson, writing: “Thank you but no thank you. Good luck to you!” to which Barr replied: “Is this an actual response? I sure appreciate it! Good luck to you too, Willie!”

Willie Nelson’s new album, ‘Heroes’ is released next week, on May 14. Rapper Snoop Dogg is one of the many special guests to appear on the record, which will include cover versions of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” and Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe” as well as featuring guest spots from singers Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Sheryl Crow

Willie Nelson has released over 200 albums and won seven Grammy Awards. Roseanne Barr headed up Roseanne from 1988 to 1997. Last year she appeared in the show Roseanne’s Nuts, about her macadamia farm in Hawaii.
