Willie in Gap Ads Book

Willie will be featured in a new book to be published by the San Francisco based GAP company:  “Individuals:  Portraits from the Gap Collection”.  The book will feature pictures of ads they ran with celebrities, and is scheduled to be released on October 17, 2006. 

Other individuals featured:  Kim Basinger, Dizzy Gillespie, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Will Kemp. The book will be available in six different colors, with different artists on the cover:  blue, red, gray, khaki, purple and olive.

The books will be packaged with a limited edition music CD of songs featured on the GAP ads.  Unfortunately, no Willie on the cd, only: Madonna featuring Missy Elliott (“Into the Hollywood Groove”), Dwight Yoakam (“Crazy Little Thing Called Love”), Neil Diamond (“Forever in Blue Jeans”), Earth, Wind & Fire (“September”), Bill Withers (“Lovely Day”), John Legend (“Hello, It’s Me”), Donovan (“Mellow Yellow”), Quincy Jones (“Stuff Like That”), Jason Mraz (“One Love”), The O’Jays (“Love Train”), Louis Prima (“Jump, Jive and Wail”), Seals & Crofts (“Summer Breeze”), Joss Stone (“God Only Knows”), The American Breed (“Bend Me Shape Me”) and The Crystal Method (“Busy Child”).

Willie is one of the five artists who contribute essays to the book, and he reportedly writes about “the setbacks he experienced when he tried to fit the mold of other country performers.”
