Willie Nelson. It's a Long Story: My Life. Little Brown 2015. 400 pages. $19.

The country music sensation.

The first song I remember hearing is On the Road Again by Willie Nelson, and I remember when he was ridiculed by the media for his tax problems. I also live in Fort Worth, TX and he's very well known for his work with Farm Aid and of course his 4th of July picnic. One time I even saw his tour bus on the side of the interstate with a flat tire. So I love, love, loved this book! It has the same kind of unpredictable, free rhythm of Willie's voice. He tells the story of his early life, loves, the making of his music, and his triumph over the IRS.
