Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. The iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of "Crazy," "Red Headed Stranger" and "Stardust."
In recent years, he has delivered 10 new album releases, a Top 10 New York Times Bestsellers book, headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, and received his fifth degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul. He also headlined the last three years of the on-going Luck Reunion food and music festival at his ranch in Luck, Texas during SXSW, announced the launch of his cannabis company Willie's Reserve, and graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
In November 2015, the Library of Congress honored him with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song for his contributions to popular music. The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song celebrates the work of an artist whose career reflects lifetime achievement in promoting song as a vehicle of musical expression and cultural understanding.
