Willie Nelson’s Letters to America
Following his bestselling memoir, It’s a Long Story, Willie Nelson now delivers his most intimate thoughts and stories in Willie Nelson’s Letters to America.
A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller!
From his opening letter “Dear America” to his “Dear Willie” epilogue, Willie digs deep into his heart and soul–and his music catalog–to lift us up in difficult times, and to remind us of the endless promise and continuous obligations of all Americans–to themselves, to one another, and to their nation.
In a series of letters straight from the heart, Willie sends his thanks and his thoughts to:
- Americans past, present, and future,
- his closest family members, andhis parents, sister, and children,
- his other family members
- his guitar “Trigger”,
- his hero Gene Autry,
- the US founding fathers,
- his personal heroes, from our founding fathers to the leaders of future generations and to young songwriters as well as leaders of our future generations.
Willie’s letters are rounded out with the moving lyrics to some of his most famous and insightful songs, including “Let Me Be a Man,” “Family Bible,” “Summer of Roses,” “Me and Paul,” “A Horse called Music,” “Healing Hands of Time,” and “Yesterday’s Wine.”

John Spong, Texas Monthly senior editor and host of the One By Willie podcast
“If you’ve ever squeezed your way close to the stage at a Willie show, you’ve no doubt had that experience where he locks eyes with you mid-song, giving a sense that he’s singing directly you. Well, he was. That’s the magic of Willie. And it’s also the magic of this book, a collection of old-school, personal letters that Willie penned to the friends, family, and ideas that matter to him most.”
“Willie Nelson is a legend but more than that he is a friend I admire and respect. His words of wisdom and humor are something I always appreciate. With Letters to America, you will understand why. He puts it all out there and touches your heart. Thank you, Willie. Looking forward to seeing you on the road again.”
“Willie Nelson is a national treasure. At different points in my life he has been my Shaman, my preacher, my teacher, my north, my south, my anchor and my friend. I put my faith in the music and the man.”
