‘Scrapbooks in my Mind’ by Shirley Caddell Collie Nelson


SCRAPBOOKS IN MY MIND: Featuring Shirley and Willie Nelson and Many Others

“This is the story of a woman striving for success in the world of country music; a story of sacrifice, success, sadness, forgiveness, of following June Carter’s dictum, “Press on ,” and never losing faith.”

As far as I know, this may be the first book written about Willie Nelson by one of his wives.  I might be wrong, though.  It’s not just about Willie;  she writes about growing up and her young entry into the entertainment business.  She started performing to help feed her family when she was four; and married for the first time at 15.   She writes so fondly about her favorite guitar Baby.
