It is crazy to think that Willie Nelson has been on the country rock music scene since back in the fifties, and makes quite a few people reminisce about younger years and when they remember they first fell in love with the guitar god that is Willie. Throughout all of his years, Willie Nelson no doubt still has it, all if it, and more.
From getting in trouble with the men in badges for some alleged marijuana use to the four separate marriages of his, there is no doubt about it that Willie Nelson definitely knows how to stir up the pot so to speak no matter what age. Another side of the spectrum that goes to show the beauty of Willie's heart are those acts such as his constant care of being active in raising awareness for proper treatment of horses, support of the 2004 Democratic presidential primaries in support of Dennis Kucinich, throwing a benefit concert to help all those who were affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. As well, there is even a flavor of ice cream at Ben & Jerry's that is called "Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler Ice Cream", and not only is it tasty as the name, but proceeds coming from the flavor will go straight to Farm Aid, which was organized my Willie Nelson and others to help support family farms.
Oh, there is also that little know fact that Willie Nelson can rock a guitar and mic like no one's business, currently at the age of 75 and rollin' on strong. From his mail-order music lessons as a kid, to his spot as a DJ for a local radio station around his hometown in high school, Willie Nelson has definitely had more than enough great like stories and experiences for endless nights of long campfire experiences.
Needless to say, Willie Nelson is one talented mastermind of the country music world when it was true country and nothing but the real deal. His countless Grammy awards from Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1975 to his most recent Best Country Collaboration With Vocals this 2008, Willie Nelson has over the years gathered ten Grammy Awards and countless other Country Music Awards and American Music Awards. It's also pretty sweet when there are four different books on any given with different Willie Nelson stories and autobiographies on the guy.
There is an endless list of why anyone from any era would want to and can't help but fall in love with the legend that is Willie Nelson, and seeing the man live would be the cherry on top for any fan.
