    Description

    The untold story of Willie Nelson and his sister, Bobbie, who, over the course of their lives together, supported each other through personal tragedies and triumphs and forged an unbreakable bond through their shared love of music. 

    Abandoned by their parents as toddlers, Willie and Bobbie Nelson found their love of music almost immediately through their grandparents, who raised them in a small Texas town. Their close relationship - which persists today - is the longest-lasting bond in both their lives. In alternating chapters, this heartfelt dual memoir weaves together both their stories as they experienced them side by side and apart. The Nelsons share powerful, emotional moments from growing up, playing music in public for the first time, and facing trials in adulthood, as Willie pursued songwriting and Bobbie faced a series of challenging relationships and a musical career that took off only when attitudes about women began to change in Texas. 

    The memoir is Bobbie’s first book, and in it she candidly shares her life story in full for the first time. Her deeply affecting chapters delve into her personal relationships and life as a mother and as a musician with technical skills that even Willie admits surpass his own. In his poignant stories, Willie shares the depth of his bond with his sister and how that bond carried him through his most troubled moments. Willie and Bobbie have supported each other through unthinkable personal heartbreak, and they’ve always shared in each other’s victories.

    Through dizzying highs and traumatic lows, spanning almost nine decades of life, Willie and Bobbie have always had each other's back.Their story is an inspiring, lyrical statement of how family always finds the way.

    Willie and Bobbie Nelson Are The Best of Friends

    I have loved Willie Nelson since my mother discovered his album, Red Headed Stranger. My dad had red hair and my mother loved Willie maybe for his red hair. I grew up in Tulsa so had the country vibe from birth. Fortunately, my husband is also a fan. I loved this book. The narration started off a bit slow but after I got into the personality of Bobbie I could see how she grew up in a time when women turned to men for everything. She was a very talented musician in her own right but most of her fame came from playing with Willie. Glad she finally was able to join the band is share in the fame. Country music is not all fun and easy even when talented as Willie and Waylon demonstrated. I was pleased to finally find out who Paul is in the song 'Me and Paul' and to know they have been friends forever. This book is only 7 hours long and I wanted to have more about the later years but maybe there will be a sequel. They have a few more years left to travel and perform. Good genes. Thank you Willie and Bobbie for sharing your personal happenings. Glad you both are survivors.

    So-so

    I thought it rather monotonous to listen to. Would not recommend it to any body.

    Loved it!

    How can you not love hearing Willie and Bobbi's voices as they talk about their life story. Never realizing what an impact she had on his life, Bobbi's story was beautiful although sometimes sad. But such is life! As they both moved around the country, the people that impact their lives come and go. But their relationship is never ending. It would be a relationship we would all wish for - the bond of a sister and brother.

    Praise to God!

    Bobbie and Willie are beautiful examples of not allowing the bad memories define who they are. They did not allow their parents leaving them to keep them from living their lives the way they should. Praise to God for Bobbie and Willie.

    Rare Treasure of a book - I will share with everyone

    This book is so masterfully put together. To be able to capture this much life and to package it so eloquently and sweetly - it is a work of art in storytelling. It stirred up so much emotion in me. I cried through a lot of it because it resonated with me. I was inspired by so much. It is precious and awesome. To have the story narrated by Willie and Sister Bobbie makes it magically dear. This book is a treasure. Heart. Honesty. Resilience. Love. Family. History. Hard stuff. So much more. Won’t spoil it for anyone. The story will live on in my heart.
