ORLANDO, Fla. -- Country music star Willie Nelson canceled his planned concert at SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla.

He said he won't be playing the show because of the controversial documentary "Blackfish."

Barenaked Ladies also canceled a performance at the park last week, citing concerns over the park's treatment of killer whales.

Nearly 9,000 people signed a petition on Change.org asking performers not to appear at the park.
