We started out to save the family farmer. Now it looks like the family farmer is going to save us. -- Willie Nelson

For the truly multi-dimensional Willie Nelson—singer, songwriter, Gypsy jazz guitarist, producer, bandleader, family man, perennially touring musician, Hollywood actor, entrepreneur, rancher, golfer, proud Texan, leader of the Good Food Movement, and godfather of music’s Outlaw Country movement—it continues to be a hell of a ride. Shotgun Willie, whose 75th birthday was celebrated on April 30, 2008, has been making music over the course of eight distinct decades and has been a recording artist for more than five of those decades.

While he started his colorful career picking cotton at the age of three in his hometown of Abbott, Texas, Willie grew to become the creative genius behind historic recordings like "Crazy," "Hello Walls," “Red Headed Stranger” and “Stardust.” Willie’s catalog boasts more than 200 albums. He's earned every conceivable honor to be bestowed upon a person in his profession, including six GRAMMY wins, a President's Merit Award, a Grammy Legend Award and the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Willie’s latest projects, reflecting his boundless creativity and diverse talent, include a foray into fiction and a collaboration with jazz great Wynton Marsalis.

“A Tale Out of Luck,” co-authored with Mike Blakely, is a classic western tale, that brings to life characters and themes central to any great Wild West novel—Texas Rangers, cattle rustling, Indians warriors, women of ill repute, saloons, shootouts and more.“A Tale Out of Luck”is the back story for Willie’s false-front western town which he built outside of Austin, and named, “Luck.”

Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis’s acclaimed collaboration Two Men with the Blues debuted in July at #20 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with first week sales of 21,650, marking a career-high for both of these legendary artists. Released July 8, 2008, by Blue Note Records, Two Men with the Blues has also been garnering rave reviews from critics across the musical spectrum. The Boston Globe called it “an unmitigated, ear-tickling success,” while Billboard remarked that the album’s “enviably assured vibe pretty much drips out of the speakers.”

Jazz at Lincoln Center has also just announced a return engagement to the site where the album was recorded live in January 2007. On February 9, 2009, Willie & Wynton will reunite, this time in JALC’s Rose Theater to help celebrate the 70th anniversary of Blue Note Records.
