“I had been on tour, and, the next thing you know, I hit the wall,” Willie Nelson tells Rolling Stone.  “It turns out it’s a pretty good song. ” “The Wall,” which appears on Nelson’s forthcoming album, Band of Brothers, is a sort of mea culpa for the country icon. He apologizes for getting burnt out, lashing out at his friends and loved ones and “taking things” to deal with the pangs of road life, as a plaintive harmonica wails in the background. It’s honest and soul bearing, and, in the end, he proclaims, “the wall came down.”

His first song was published in 1949, and he performed live for the first time three years later. He has appeared in more than 30 movies and TV shows. Most recently the 81 year old Nelson was deemed a fifth-degree black belt.  read more at Rolling Stone
