  1. Unraveling the True Willie Nelson

    Luck, Texas, is a town as mysterious and strange as Willie Nelson himself. It’s a little Wild West film set on the corner of Nelson’s 700-acre property, constructed for Red Headed Stranger. Like the 81-year-old singer who built it, Luck is rambling, derelict and doesn’t give up its secrets easily. Since Nelson was nine, country music has been his constant, despite tax disasters, drugs and tragedy. Despite a fading memory, Nelson still spends 150 days a year on the road, sleeping in his biodiesel tour bus and practicing tae kwon do.
