 Today’s artist is a man that needs no introduction. Willie Nelson has been around what seems like forever. Actually, he hasn't been around forever. He was born in 1933 and at 88 years old is still performing to sellout crowds.Always known as a Country singer, Willie and friends perfected the outlaw sound. Nelson has worn many hats as an entertainer including author, disc jockey, song writer and movie star. Willie had parts in 30 movies including his starring role in Honeysuckle Rose.In the 1980s Nelson joined with John Mellencamp and Neil Young to establish the Farm Aid benefit concerts to help call attention to the plight of the family farms in America.When you decide to talk about Willie Nelson songs you literally have hundreds to choose from going back to the 1950s.
