Among the freshest inductees of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is Willie Nelson, a well-deserved accolade for a true outlaw artist. The now 90-year-old country musician is among the predecessors of the rebellious, anti-establishment musicians of the country music scene. He is known for climbing the mainstream by deviating from it. His style is a mixture of jazz, pop, blues, rock, and folk, propelled by his nasal voice and slack guitar picking. Under his belt are a whopping 99 studio albums, massive songwriting credits, and heaps of collaborations from varied corners of the music industry. He did all this coming out of left field from the Nashville country image propagated during the 70s up until the 90s. Due to his creative style, he is considered a "vital icon in country music." His legacy can be witnessed in varied forms adapted by many musicians of varying genres in today's music industry.
2023 is Nelson's year with him winning the Grammy Award for Best Country Album for "A Beautiful Time" and Best Country Solo Performance. These awards solidified his 14 wins with the Grammys since the 70s. There might be more to be expected in the years to come.
These celebrations of his music are a testament to his undying passion for country music. "He's so versatile and he's so honest. That's all we want to be as songwriters ... I don't know that anybody will ever catch Willie and what he's done for music." Country superstar Miranda Lambert said in an interview.
The legendary musician continues to play on many venues nationwide, bringing with him his touring group Willie Nelson & Family. Being on the road is the best way of honoring his listeners and a big celebration of his music.
