Willie Nelson Biography

With a six-decade career and more than 200 albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of "Crazy," "Red Headed Stranger," and "Stardust." Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In recent years, he has delivered more than a dozen new album releases, published "It's A Long Story: My Life," the unvarnished and complete story of his life that landed him on the New York Times' bestsellers list, received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu, launched his cannabis companies Willie's Reserve and Willie's Remedy, and graced the covers of Rolling Stone and AARP The Magazine. In November 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. He is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award.

On loan from Brooklyn rock band The Slim Kings, singer/songwriter/guitarist¬†Michael Sackler-Berner's new video does not rock.¬†It doesn't folk-rock either, as fans of his solo work might expect - it swings.¬†In¬†MSB's dreams, it's Bennett, Sinatra, or Martin, but there's a punk side to the track because he's not a crooner by trade. It is tailor-made for people who think Bubl√© is cheese, but dig young gents singing and writing tunes for Big Band. Pop and jazz fans alike will latch onto this ‚ÄúAutumn in New York‚ÄĚ release by the Big Apple native.
