With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of Crazy, Red Headed Stranger, and Stardust. Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and has amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist.
Nelson has always been a musical and cultural force and he is not slowing down. In recent years, he has:
- Delivered more than a dozen new albums;
- Released his autobiography,
It’s a Long Story: My Life,
which became a Top 10 New York Times’ Bestseller;
- Headlined Farm Aid, the
event he co-founded in 1985;
- Headlined the annual Luck
Reunion food and music festival at his ranch in Luck, TX during SXSW;
- Been honored with the Gershwin
Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress (he is the first country artist to receive the distinguished award);
- Launched his cannabis companies
Willie’s Reserve and Willie’s Remedy; and
- Graced the covers of
and AARP The Magazine.
Several of his recent albums are notable. Django And Jimmie (2015), a duet album with Merle Haggard, debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Country album chart and #7 on Billboard‘s Top 200 album chart. Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin (2015) is a collection of 11 newly-recorded Gershwin classics that debuted at #1 on both the Top Current Jazz chart and the Top Traditional Jazz chart. It also earned Nelson a Grammy Award for the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
Other new releases include For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price (2016), Willie Nelson and The Boys (2017), and God’s Problem Child (2017), which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country album chart and #10 on the Billboard 200.
In 2018, Nelson released two more albums. Last Man Standing was recorded in celebration of his 85th birthday. It is comprised entirely of songs newly-penned by Nelson (and longtime collaborator and producer Buddy Cannon). My Way is a collection of newly recorded standards and classic originally made famous by Nelson’s close friend and musical colleague Frank Sinatra.
These new songs and albums add to his classic catalog and find Nelson rolling at a creative peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from still traveling on the road.
