Today, one of country music's most iconic voices and faces turns 82 years old. It was on this day (April 29) in 1933 that Willie Nelson, a true pioneer, trendsetter and a rock for country music lovers worldwide, was born.
A casual country fan may only know that Willie Nelson sings country music, and smokes a lot of marijuana. These things are true, but there's so much more to this country legend. This episode of You Think You Know Country? explores the singer's dark side.
Some singers don't have to wait long at all. In fact, today it seems many even begin their careers with national television debuts, others have to wait five decades. The latter is the case for country / outlaw singer / songwriter Billy Joe Shaver.
Abbott, Texas native Willie Nelson is a well-known marijuana legalization advocate. Following the legalization of the drug in Washington, D.C. and Oregon, the Texas country singer appeared on CNN to talk about why he thinks it won't be long until marijuana is legalized all over the U.S.
Willie Nelson's famous braids will soon be available for purchase. The 'On the Road Again' singer's hair will be sold at an auction on Oct. 5, along with several other items owned by the late Waylon Jennings. Nelson gave Jennings' the hair after he cut it off in 1983 as a sign of support for his friend, when Jennings decided to become sober.
This is GOOD news. For Musgraves, who has toured (or will tour) with everyone from Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum to Katy Perry and Willie Nelson, it was just a matter of time before she collaborated with one of 'em... And we're stoked Willie is up first.
