This week Nate is joined by author Joe Nick Patoski for the final of three episodes discussing his biography of Willie Nelson: An Epic Life
In this episode, Joe Nick tells us about the years when Willie, Waylon and the boys became the biggest stars in American pop music, Willie’s triumphant 80’s doing duets with everyone from Merle Haggard and Ray Price to Julio Iglesias, his battles with the IRS, touring with the Highwaymen and playing at the wedding of Bill and Melinda Gates and Ray Charles’ funeral.
Thanks for listening. Next week, Nate will be back with author Robert Gordon to discuss his new book: Memphis Rent Party.
Let It Roll is a series of in-depth interviews with music writers like Ed Ward, Robert Gordon, Paul Trynka, Peter Doggett, Elijah Wald and more.
