New Willie Nelson documentary Saturday

Monday, April 5th, 2021

www.Reelz.com

Even after penning some of Nashville’s best-known hits, his record labels’ cookie-cutter approach to creating music made Willie Nelson contemplate hocking vacuum cleaners. Distraught, he pulls stakes and heads back to hardscrabble Texas. There, a gritty blend of rednecks, hippies and an emerging counter culture are brewing and connect with Willie’s unorthodox approach to songwriting and performing. It’s tagged the “Outlaw Movement” and Willie Nelson is poster boy. But would it succeed as the country music industry was entering a whole new age? And what hard life lessons would Willie learn in the end?

The AMS team crafted all-new Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash 1-hr documentary specials that premier back to back this Saturday, April 10th on Reelz. Set your DVRs!

Willie Nelson is looking happy and healthy, and just might be the youngest 87-year-old in the music business, based on his appearance Wednesday for Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Flanked by his two sons Micah and Lukas, all on acoustic guitars, the country legend performed “I Never Cared for You,” a song he originally cut back in 1964.

The Nelsons are one musical family.

It’s another welcome comeback for the patriarch, who ended a tour early last August due to lung conditions robbing his breath. He recovered, returned to the road pre-coronavirus and just released a new album, First Rose of Spring. Judging by his stint on late-night TV, he’s not short of energy (or breath).

The Country Music Hall of Famer also sat for a chat with guest host George Lopez. The pair covered a lot of turf, from all the “BS going on around the world,” to Willie’s love affair of the green stuff (“I’ve been smoking something my whole life”) and he admitted to once getting too high to perform (he said “sorry” to the audience, and went back to the bus).

Despite Willie’s troubles with breathing in recent years, don’t buy the stories about him giving up pot. “I read that somewhere. I had a nice laugh about it,” he said. The cigarettes, however, are long gone.

First Rose of Spring dropped on July 3 and is Willie’s 70th studio LP. Produced by Buddy Cannon, the album “has a lot of good songs on it. The title song First Rose of Spring is a great song,” Willie explains. “In fact, all the songs on there are good.”
