Willie Nelson: My Life

February 27th, 2015

mylife2

“Everything in this video, both the good and the bad in my life, is the absolute truth.” – Willie Nelson

“Willie Nelson: My Life” is the close-up portrait of America’s favorite singer/songwriter, from the days he sold one of his early hits, Family Bible, for $50 to buy milk for his children through his long struggle to superstardom.

Included in the video are interviews with Willie and his friends Ray Charles (who duts with Willie on the song “Seven Spanish Angels”), Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Sydney Pollack, Gary Busey, Mel Tillis, Ray Price, Jerry Jeff Walker and others.

“While I am more of a passive than an active Willie fan, I will have to say for my first Willie show, it was impressive. I didn’t realize how much guitar playing Willie actually does. He was blasting out solos and shredding riffs on that small guitar.”

“There would be no Austin City Limits without Willie Nelson” ( Austin City Limits Hall of Fame PBS 2015)

February 26th, 2015

www.pgs.org

Austin City Limits celebrates 40 years on television with a grand finale featuring musical highlights and inductions from the first-ever Austin City Limits Hall of Fame presentation. Hosted by Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey, this never-before-broadcast special showcases outstanding performances and collaborations from the ACL Hall of Fame ceremony held April 26, 2014, including Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Buddy Guy, Robert Randolph and more. The program also honors the inaugural class of Hall of Fame inductees, featuring legendary music acts Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble and a pair of individuals who played an invaluable role in the genesis of the series: show creator Bill Arhos and Texas Longhorns football head coach and ACL supporter Darrell Royal.

For this extraordinary occasion ACL returns to its original Studio 6A, where the series taped its first episode in 1974—featuring Willie Nelson—to honor the artists and individuals who have inspired the iconic television series throughout its four decade run. The intimate performances include inductee Willie Nelson, joined by Lyle Lovett and Emmylou Harris for stunning readings of Nelson-penned classics including “Funny How Time Slips Away”, “Crazy” and “On the Road Again.” Matthew McConaughey inducts his friend and fellow Texan, saying “There would be no Austin City Limits without Willie Nelson.”
