Nelson previously collaborated with Turk Pipkin on 2006's 'The Tao of Willie: A Guide to Happiness in Your Heart'.
Harper Horizon have announced the publication date for Willie Nelson’s Letters to America, written by the music legend with his friend Turk Pipkin.
The new volume will land on June 29th just nine months after the publication of Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of the Family Band, a dual memoir with his sister and longtime bandmate Bobbie Nelson.
Willie Nelson’s Letters to America is described in a press release as “a collection of intimate letters reminding readers of the endless promise and continuous obligations of all Americans – to themselves, to one another, and to their nation – to stand with unity, resolve, and faith.”
The new publication by Nelson is “a more personal and intimate book than anything he’s ever written...from his opening letter ‘Dear America’ to his ‘Dear Willie’ epilogue, Willie digs deep into his heart and soul – and his music catalogue – to lift us up in difficult times.
“In a series of letters straight from the heart,” the press statement continues, “Willie sends his thanks and his thoughts to Americans past, present, and future, his closest family members, and his personal heroes, from our founding fathers to the leaders of future generations.”
The book is illustrated with lyrics from a gathering of Nelson’s most memorable songs, such as 'Let Me Be A Man', 'Family Bible,' 'Summer of Roses,' 'Me and Paul,' and 'Yesterday’s Wine'.
