I’ve been an avid country music fan for my whole life. The relatable lyrics and bouncing, flowing melodies have drawn me to singers like Willie Nelson, George Strait and Hank Williams. I enjoy how personable their songs are, how each song sounds like they could be sitting across a campfire from you. Many country singers would have been good subjects for biographies, but I was drawn to Willie Nelson’s because he has had such a long life, and I have always been drawn to his songwriting style, and I was hoping that he would have the same flowing, lyrical writing in his autobiography. Thus far, I have not been disappointed. Willie’s personable songwriting style and lyrical sentences make reading his life story just like listening to his music. I knew Willie was born in a tiny town in Texas in the middle of one of the worst economic periods in history, the Great Depression, and walked a long road to becoming one of the most influential artists of all time, writing and playing music the whole way through.
