This profile of Willie Nelson pieces together the country outlaw's life as it follows him on tour. Commenting: Waylon Jennings, Ray Charles, Lyle Lovett, Dave Matthews and Kinky Friedman, as well as Nelson's sister Bobbie, daughters Amy and Paula, and members of his road "family." The profile also includes Nelson's own takes on a number of subjects. Among them: his past tax woes. "It was good for my image," he says dryly. "It helped the 'outlaw' thing along."
