A casual country fan may only know that Willie Nelson sings country music, and smokes a lot of marijuana. These things are true, but there's so much more to this country legend. This episode of You Think You Know Country? explores the singer's dark side.
Willie Nelson is hosting his 4th of July picnic in Austin this year, and he's bringing in some top talent for the special occasion. Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves and a host of other stars will join Nelson during the special celebration.
Thirty-five years ago today, on Sept. 1, 1979, Leon Russell and Willie Nelson both had one very good reason to celebrate. Their remake of the Elvis Presley classic, 'Heartbreak Hotel,' soared to No. 1 on the country chart.
Willie Nelson has long been in support of the legalization of marijuana, explaining that it makes him feel more relaxed and even provides health benefits. The singer is optimistic about the drug becoming legal, recently noting that "the future looks good."
