With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, Willie Nelson is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain,” “Always on My Mind” and “Crazy.” The iconic Texan has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist.
Nelson wrote his first song at age 7 and joined his first band at 10. In high school, he toured locally with the Bohemian Polka as their lead singer and guitar player. Upon returning from the Air Force in 1950, Nelson attended Baylor University for two years before leaving to focus on his music career. In 1962, he recorded his first album, titled ...And Then I Wrote. In 1964, Nelson signed with RCA Victor and joined the Grand Ole Opry the following year. After mid-chart hits in the late 1960s and the early 1970s, Nelson retired in 1972.
In 2013, Nelson recorded Let's Face The Music And Dance and To All The Girls… which features duets with music's top female singers including Dolly Parton, Sheryl Crow, Wynonna Judd, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, and Norah Jones.
