“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.”

Willie Nelson has undoubtedly lived through some crazy experiences throughout his life, and now he’s sharing them with the world. The iconic country singer will release a new memoir titled It’s a Long Story: My Life.
In his brand new book, Nelson delves into everything from his childhood to his legendary music career, which spans almost 60 years and includes over 100 albums, countless awards, his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993 and a Kennedy Center Honor in 1998.

In It’s a Long Story, the 81-year-old singer also shares details about his personal life, including stories from his childhood in Abbott, Tex. during the Great Depression, details about his own marriages and family and even some never-before-told tales from the Farm Aid concert series, which he co-created in 1985. The Red Headed Stranger even opens up about his history with alcohol and tobacco and talks about why he’s such a strong advocate for the legalization of medical marijuana.

With a songwriting and singing career that’s produced some of the world’s most well-known and well-loved country songs, Nelson spends a considerable amount of time writing about music in the new book as well. It’s a Long Story explores what makes him so passionate about writing music and shares stories behind some of his biggest hits like “Always on My Mind” and “On the Road Again.” Shotgun Willie also uses the book to relive fond memories of his decades-long friendships and collaborations with renowned artists like Ray Charles, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings.

It’s a Long Story: My Life looks to be Nelson’s most personal book, but it’s not the first time he’s had writing credits. He has authored or co-authored various other books since 1998, including another about his life called, Willie: An Autobiography. It’s a Long Story is co-written by David Ritz and will be released on May 5 through Little, Brown and Company. Fans can preorder the book on Amazon.
