The Enduring Legend of Willie Nelson

The Enduring Legend of Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson can't keep up this kind of schedule any more.   Or can he?

The wear and tear of 60 years on the road  shows, like the hundreds of names scratched into the soundboard of his vintage Martin N-20 acoustic guitar. Standing in clear bright stage lights in front of a paired down band, he embraces every nick and dent like the Alamo embraces bullet holes. And like that old mission, he has become an important piece of the mythology of Texas. Willie Nelson, Texas icon and last of the outlaws, finishes a signature tune, looks you in the eyes and smiles. Overwhelming odds don't matter. We're from Texas.
