Willie Nelson is set to pen a memoir which should be quite entertaining just like the musician himself. According to the Associated Press via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Oct. 30, Little, Brown and Company will be publishing the legendary crooner's "unvarnished story" in 2015.
The untitled Willie Nelson memoir will follow up other written efforts by this artist, including the 80-year-old singer's autobiography. Nelson was born in Abbott, Texas on April 29, 1933 and was raised by his grandparents during the Depression. By the age of 10 he was already in a group and making music.
Although Willie eventually became a bona fide superstar, he also had his trials and tribulations throughout the years. He had all of his assets seized by the IRS in 1990 and has been married four times with his union to Annie D'Angelo sticking for more than 20 years.
In addition, Nelson's lung collapsed while the singer was taking a Hawaii swim and he has been taken in by the law for marijuana possession. In fact, weed is one of the many subjects for which Willie is an advocate as he strives for pot legalization. That said, another book Willie Nelson scribed is colorfully called "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me when I Die: Musings from the Road."
And so, as this American icon continues to entertain, he is going to give up even more about his amazing and unpredictable life when his memoir comes out in 2015. Stay tuned as he stays in tune, singing for country music's devoted masses much to their collective delight.
