Someone out there owns a little piece of Willie Nelson. And they just had to pay $37,000 to get it.

An auction in Phoenix, AZ on Sunday (Oct. 5) was selling items from Waylon Jennings’ estate. One of the items up for bid was Nelson’s red braids, which the country singer gave to Jennings in 1983 to show support for Jennings’ sobriety.

The story gets even better once you know Nelson presented Jennings with the hair at a party thrown by Johnny Cash that same year.

It has not yet been revealed who exactly bought Nelson’s red braids. Though, we’re interested to know what you do with someone’s old hair, albeit a famous person’s 31-year-old hair.
