Willie Nelson to Share Musings From the Road in New Memoir

Willie Nelson book
William Morrow

Willie Nelson is one of the most prolific and celebrated songwriters of his generation, and a musical and cultural icon as well. The legendary country performer is set to reveal some new stories and insights into his life and music with the upcoming publication of Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From the Road, which he will release on November 13 through William Morrow.

The Red-Headed Stranger has released several other memoirs and books about assorted topics, but a press release from the publisher says this new tome will feature “never-before-heard stories about his life, family, music, politics, Texas, religion and favorite recreational activity” — an obvious reference to Nelson’s much-documented fondness for marijuana, which inspired the title of the book as well as a song by the same name from his recent album ‘Heroes.’

‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die’ will also include contributions from Nelson’s family and friends, artwork from his son Micah, and a foreword by author and musician Kinky Friedman, Nelson’s longtime friend. The book is currently available for pre-order.

The iconic entertainer hasn’t been sitting around bored waiting for his book to come out; this past Saturday (Sept. 22) he headlined the 27th annual Farm Aid concert in Hershey, Penn.
