Willie Nelson Inks Book Deal

nelson

Willie Nelson has landed a book deal to tell the “unvarnished, complete, and tremendous story” of his life.

Nelson has published a number of books over the course of his prolific career, but the publisher promised “none will be as personal or as wide in scope as this.”

Little, Brown and Company will publish the book in the summer of 2015. David Vigliano of Vigliano Associates negotiated the deal with executive editor John Parsley.

Here’s more from the release:

Having recently turned eighty, Nelson is ready to open up about all aspects of his life. He starts at the beginning, revealing a tough little kid abandoned by his parents, and moves through his failures at various jobs, his early days as the self-starting proprietor of Willie Nelson Presents, his struggles in 1960s Nashville, and then on to the profound success he has had as one of America’s all-time most beloved singer-songwriters. And, in between, he shares stories he hasn’t told involving a fascinating cast of characters, including Ray CharlesWaylon JenningsJohnny CashKris KristoffersonMerle Haggard, and many more.

Nelson’s most recent album, To All the Girls, entered the Billboard Top 200 at No. 9 earlier this month.
