The definitive autobiography of Willie Nelson

"Unvarnished. Funny. Leaving no stone unturned."

. . . So say the publishers about this book I've written.

What I say is that this is the story of my life, told as clear as a Texas sky and in the same rhythm that I lived it.

It's a story of restlessness and the purity of the moment and living right. Of my childhood in Abbott, Texas, to the Pacific Northwest, from Nashville to Hawaii and all the way back again. Of selling vacuum cleaners and encyclopedias while hosting radio shows and writing song after song, hoping to strike gold.

It's a story of true love, wild times, best friends, and barrooms, with a musical sound track ripping right through it.

My life gets lived on the road, at home, and on the road again, tried and true, and I've written it all down from my heart to yours.

Signed,
Willie Nelson

About the Author:

Willie Nelson is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. He was inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993.

Review:

"A smooth-spoken recollection of the country legend's childhood and his eight-decade-long musical career.... Just like this book -- and its subject -- direct and genuine."―Mike Snider, USA Today

"Invaluable... Nelson writes the way he sings and plays guitar--with conversational ease and grace."―James Reed, The Boston Globe

"Every page radiates authenticity.... Heartfelt...."―Douglas Brinkley, The Washington Post

"Endlessly entertaining.... Readers of It's a Long Story will finally get the sense that Nelson is sitting before them spilling everything he can remember.... It's a wonderful thing if you love ol' Willie -- and who doesn't? ... Nelson has spent decades on the road building this story -- do yourself a favor and take a day or two to read it."―Hunter Hauk, Dallas Morning News

"Brims with affectionate reminiscences of Nelson's childhood and semi-wayward youth, his turbulent marriages and career zigzags. And of course his raison d'être, music."―Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

A "breezy new autobiography... His voice as a writer, as in song, is warm, generous and good-timey."―James Sullivan, San Francisco Chronicle

"Nelson offers a warm, friendly, and a deeply reflective glimpse behind the making of most of his albums as well as behind-the-scenes looks at some of his best-known hits.... Reading Nelson's narrative is like sitting on the front porch chatting with an old friend."―Publishers Weekly

A "candid, heartfelt memoir.... In a plainspoken, conversational tone reminiscent of his singing voice."―Dave Shiflett, Wall Street Journal

"The closing chapters are reflective and heartfelt--part musical and part personal--and they nicely bookend Nelson's admirable attempt to recount his 'long story.'"―Andrew Dansby, The Houston Chronicle

"One of the original 'outlaw' country singers puts it all on the line with this bawdy and moving tale of his extraordinary life."―Allen Pierleoni, The Sacramento Bee
