Willie Nelson Details
Willie Nelson BioWillie Nelson is one of country music’s most unique voices – and he’s also one of its most enduring stars. For fans of Nelson’s music, those two traits are intertwined: in an era when most country music makes huge concessions to mainstream pop sensibilities, Willie Nelson remains an outlaw, making uncompromising country music with a classic vibe and undeniable style. That commitment has made Willie Nelson one of the most important country stars in music history.
But becoming a country music legend isn’t an easy thing to do. Willie Nelson’s journey to country music immortality has been full of challenges and setbacks. Through it all, his commitment to pure country sounds and great songwriting has kept his fans coming back for more, snapping up Willie Nelson tickets and albums.
Willie Hugh Nelson was born on April 29, 1933 in Abbott, Texas. Willie’s life got tough fast: a child of the Great Depression, Willie soon found himself parentless. Willie’s mother moved away and his father, after remarrying, followed suit. Willie and his sister were raised by their grandparents.
It was Willie’s grandparents that first introduced him to the world of music. The Nelsons had been music teachers in Arkansas before the Depression, and they shared their love of music with their grandchildren. Willie’s grandfather came home with a guitar for him one day when he was six, and Willie took to it right away. Along with his sister, Willie soon began performing gospel songs in church. Soon, Willie was performing in bars and local venues. The money he earned from this hobby helped him avoid picking cotton, which was the way the family usually made their money. Willie continued to play throughout high school, even forming a band and playing on local radio.
In 1950, Willie graduated from high school and joined the Air Force. He returned to Abbott in 1952 and got married for the first of four times. Nelson next headed to college at Baylor University – but soon dropped out to focus entirely on his music. Unfortunately, success didn’t come right away.
In the mid-1950s, Nelson played and recorded wherever he could. He found his way to Portland, Oregon, where his mother lived, and got a gig at a radio station in nearby Vancouver, Washington. Nelson returned to Texas later in the decade and played his music there, before finally heading to Nashville – the capital of the country music world – in 1960.
In Nashville, Nelson initially failed to attract major label attention as a solo artist but joined a touring band as a bassist and earned some hits as a songwriter. His hits belatedly got him the attention of industry insiders, and Nelson inked his first deal as a solo performing artist in 1961. He released his first album, ...And Then I Wrote (1962), that same year.
Nelson released a flurry of albums over the rest of the decade: Here's Willie Nelson (1963), Country Willie – His Own Songs (1965), Country Favorites – Willie Nelson Style (1966), Make Way for Willie Nelson (1967), The Party's Over and Other Great Willie Nelson Songs (1967), Texas in My Soul (1969), and My Own Peculiar Way (1969). Most of these albums were moderately successful, but Nelson wasn’t making as much money as he deserved. While he received the money from fans who bought Willie Nelson tickets, plenty of fans were buying tickets for other artists and hearing them singing Willie Nelson’s songs – all without Nelson seeing a dime. Nelson soldiered on into the 1970s, recording six more albums in just three years: After Both Sides Now (1970), Laying My Burdens Down (1970), Willie Nelson and Family (1971), Yesterday’s Wine (1971), The Words Don’t Fit the Picture (1972), and The Willie Way (1972). But by the time they were all done, enough was enough: at the end of the 1972, an exhausted Willie Nelson retired.
The newly retired Willie Nelson headed back to Austin, Texas – and caught a second wind that would revive and transform his career. Austin was full of hippies, and the freedom of their musical vision inspired Nelson. He immediately un-retired and released Shotgun Willie (1973), a stylistic departure that began Nelson’s “Outlaw Country” phase. Though the album was only a modest commercial success, it got rave reviews from critics.
Commercial success followed. Phases and Stages (1974) and Red Headed Stranger (1975) were both hits, and the later was the first album on a new deal with Columbia Records that gave Nelson full creative control.
For the next several decades, Nelson would become one of the most iconic faces of Outlaw Country, a swaggering, misbehaving, back-to-basics brand of country music that revived the genre in the minds of many fans. Die-hard country fans joined young hippies in buying Willie Nelson records, which maintained country traditions while expressing a rebel spirit. Nelson collaborated with other figures in the movement, including Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. Nelson collaborated on an entire album – 1982’s Pancho & Lefty – with Haggard.
In 1990, Willie Nelson was sued for unpaid taxes by the IRS. Combined with poor investment decisions, it nearly undid all of the financial success he’d earned in the 70s and 80s. Nelson and the IRS settled on an agreement that included the release of a new album – The IRS Tapes: Who'll Buy My Memories? (1992) – from which all profits would go to the IRS in order to pay Nelson’s debts.
Nelson regained his financial security and continued to perform throughout the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. His classic country style and famous love for marijuana gained him a new generation of fans. As always, it was easy for Nelson to stand out from the crowd in the country music scene. Nelson’s recent releases include a collection of standards (2010’s Country Music) and an album of duets with female singers (2013’s To All the Girls…).
Today, Willie Nelson remains one of country music’s biggest and most important stars. Fans still rush to get their hands on Willie Nelson tickets and Willie Nelson albums, and the singer still tours and records extensively, just as he did as early as the 1960s. Willie Nelson’s place in country music history is assured, but he hasn’t let that slow him down.
