Pretty paper : a Christmas tale by Willie Nelson( Book )

10 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Willie Nelson, country music's quintessential musician, displays all the wit and warmth of his homespun style of storytelling in an inspiring holiday novel based on his classic Christmas song, "Pretty Paper." More than fifty years ago, Willie Nelson's beloved Christmas song "Pretty Paper" first hit the airwaves. And for all these years, Willie has wondered about the real-life Texas street vendor, selling wrappings and ribbons, who inspired his song. Who was this poor soul? What did his painful trials say about our loves, our hopes, our dreams in this holiday season--and in the rest of our lives? It's the early sixties and Willie Nelson is down and out, barely eking out a living as a singer songwriter. The week before Christmas, he spots a legless man on a cart, selling wares in front of Leonard's Department Store in Fort Worth, Texas. The humble figure, by the name of Vernon Clay, piques Willie's curiosity, but Vernon is stubbornly private and--despite Willie's charming queries--has no interest in telling his story. Willie is tenacious, though, and he eventually learns that Vernon is a fellow musician, a fine guitarist and singer. When Vernon disappears, he leaves behind only a diary, which tells an epic tale of life-altering tragedies, broken hearts, and crooked record men, not to mention backroad honky-tonks, down-home cooking, and country songwriting genius. Deeply moved and spurred on by Vernon's pages, Willie aims to give the man one last shot at redemption and a chance to embody the holiday spirit"--

"For more than forty years, Willie Nelson has been a national treasure, creating a legacy that extends far beyond the scope of his music. He has mobilized support for the American farmer and has become one of the nation's most knowledgeable advocates of the use of biodiesel - a clean-burning renewable fuel made from vegetable oils or animal fats," "In this funny and inspirational book, Nelson confronts our dependency on foreign oil. Through facts, stories, and interviews with everyday Americans, he extols the benefits of biodiesel as an alternative fuel - one that not only drastically reduces carbon dioxide emissions but also may save our family farms. Whether he's sharing his recipe for Willie's Blender Biodiesel or explaining its scientific properties, Nelson provides a down-to-earth approach to a complex issue, inspiring all of us to get on the clean road again."--Jacket

American classic by Willie Nelson( Recording )

25 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary singer Willie Nelson American Classic is his first album of standards since his landmark 1978 masterpiece Stardust, and his solo debut for Blue Note Records. Produced by Tommy LiPuma, American Classic features special guest appearances by Norah Jones and Diana Krall, string arrangements by Johnny Mandel, and a top shelf backing band that includes Nelson's longtime sidekick Mickey Raphael on harmonica, and such notable jazzmen as pianist Joe Sample, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Lewis Nash. While it's common now for mature pop artists to attempt to put their own stamp on the American Songbook, Nelson practically invented the approach. He set the standard for playing the standards with Stardust, perhaps this "outlaw" entertainer's most daring move. The album went on to become the most successful album of his career thus far. It reached #1 on the Billboard's Country Albums chart; racked up more than five million in sales; earned Nelson a Country Male Vocal Performance Grammy; and, most significantly, helped to transform a colourful, middle-aged cult figure into a mainstream star
