About the Book

An intimate collection of fond memories, personal letters, good songs, and bad jokes from a true American legend.

"This is your old friend, Willie, sending a note to see how you're doing and to say I'm doing fine."

In this series of short letters straight from the heart, Willie sends his thanks and his thoughts to everyone from his family, his fellow musicians, his heroes, and his guitar "Trigger."

These letters, written in the straight-shooting, heart-rending, and profound style of his songs are a lyrical homage to all Americans—past, present, and future. From his opening letter "Dear America" to his epilogue, Willie digs deep into his heart and soul—and his music—to lift us up in difficult times, and to remind us of the endless promise and continuous obligations to ourselves, to one another, and to our nation.

These pages are also filled with the moving lyrics to some of his most famous and insightful songs, including "Let Me Be a Man," "Family Bible," "Summer of Roses," "Me and Paul," "A Horse called Music," "Healing Hands of Time," and "Yesterday's Wine."

Willie Nelson's Letters to America is perfect for:

  • Musicians and fans of country, bluegrass, and folk music.
  • Fans of Willie’s bestselling memoir, It’s A Long Story.
  • Anyone looking for some simple and timeless wisdom and tasteful humor.

All Americans: who need to be reminded that "when the going gets tough, the tough needs a little inspiration to get going."


'In Willie Nelson's recent memoir Willie Nelson's' Letters to America, the country music icon bares his most personal epistles to the country he loves, his heroes and influences, stories behind the songs and the creative (and life) lessons he's learned along the way.'

'Partly autobiographical, often funny, and entirely insightful from a cannabis-loving man who's fully experienced every one of his 88 years, Willie Nelson's Letters to America is a beautiful read for all.'
