An icon of pop culture for his beloved image as a musical outlaw, Willie Nelson is also an accomplished songwriter, performer, actor and social activist with his own distinct place in the history of American entertainment.
American icon Willie Nelson has recorded 81 studio albums, released 97 singles and crafted 22 number one records in his history as one of the top musicians in America. Famous for smash hits like “On the Road Again,” “Crazy,” “Always On My Mind,” “Blue Skies,” “If You’ve Got the Money I’ve Got the Time” and “Nothing I Can Do About It Now,” the eight-time Country Music Award and 10-time Grammy Award-winning star has been a household name for almost six decades.
