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.
