It's a Long Story: My Life

by Willie Nelson
Narrated by David Ritz

What a wild ride!  Highly entertaining, Willie Nelson has had a very full life.  Besides having Willie narrating this story himself, they could not have picked a better reader.  There is some swearing and drug references, so it may not be something you want to listen to with your kids in the car.  I enjoyed this book immensely and learned quite a bit about Willie.  I never realized how many songs he has written, and how long it took him to reach the top.  He talks about his battles with agents, his struggles along the way and his trouble with the IRS.  Willie also talks about writing his songs, his time growing up, his family, and his works with other big name artists such as Waylon Jennings and many others.  Don’t miss the story of this Outlaw Country artist.
