Legends of Country Music: Willie Nelson James Hoag Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Willie Nelson could do everything, but he had two passions, music and golf. He loved playing both and could play music with just about anyone. One day, he would play in the seediest bar in Austin, Texas and the next day, he might front the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Willie has been called the Shakespeare of American music. Whether the song is “On the Road Again” or “Always On My Mind” or any of the dozens of other songs he is known for, you know the voice of Willie Nelson the second you hear it.

Willie Nelson is a one of a kind American. The world is a better place because Willie Nelson was in it.

This is a tribute to the great Willie Nelson.
