Willie Nelson BIO

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.
