It's A Long Story by Willie Nelson

My dad was a Willie Nelson fan so I grew up hearing all the radio hits. When I saw Willie on The Daily Show, I figured I would give the book a shot.

"How does someone who smokes that much pot get so much done?"

I really had no idea of the scope of Nelson's work. He's been doing the music thing since he was just a little kid and is still doing it at 82. Over 60 albums, tours all the time, beat the IRS, 4 wives, many kids, pot advocate, Farm Aid, etc etc etc. How in the world does he keep doing this??

Willie has had a crazy life and the book reads like a conversation, sitting around a firepit, drinking a beer (or having a smoke). Excellent read for anyone who likes the "old" country.
