It’s a Long Story by Willie Nelson and David Ritz,

Narrated by Christopher Ryan Grant

(Audible)

Willie, Waylon and the boys…in 2015, having just turned 80, Willie shares an in-depth look at the good and bad the comprised his life, so far. While the story is narrated by Christopher Ryan Grant, he does a fabulous job of letting you hear Willie’s voice. This autobiography is told in the same style of Willie’s songs, often the words of his songs are shared amid the story. It feels like you are sitting on the porch listening to a good friend tell you about his life. Isn’t that why we love Willie Nelson, his songs, while simple in design have layers of truth that resonates with each of us.

From his boyhood in Texas, through his tumultuous marriages, his family, his songs, his battles with the law and the IRS, Willie unashamedly bares it all. If I didn’t already love him, this autobiography would make me a fan.
