Willie Nelson Tells of His Life in New Book

Posted by Megan Hagedorn on 09/28/2012
Willie Nelson is one of the most popular, prolific, and influential songwriters and singers in the history of American music. He has been
inducted into a number of music halls of fame, was named a Kennedy Center honoree in 1998, and was given a Grammy Lifetime
Achievement Award in 2000. He has recorded more than one hundred albums over six decades, appeared in several films, and written two
New York Times bestsellers.
In his newest book, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, set for a November 13 release, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest
influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends and colleagues who have blessed his
remarkable journey. In signature Willie-style, he riffs on everything: music, politics, his home state of Texas, religion, his wife and children,
his past relationships, his favorite recreational activity, plus much more. Willie Nelson has touched millions, and none more deeply than his
family, friends, and band mates, several of whom share, for the first time, intimate stories about the “Red Headed Stranger”. 
Willie has never been one to bring his personal life to the tabloids, which is why many call him the Red Headed Stranger. But this book
offers stories and tidbits of his life that he's never expressed publically. Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die is a deeply personal look
into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for
generations to come.
