In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything, from music to poker, Texas to Nashville, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over the course of eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from family, bandmates, and close friends. Rare family pictures, beautiful artwork created by his son, Micah Nelson, and lyrics to classic songs punctuate these charming and poignant memories.

A road journal written in Willie Nelson's inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America’s greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die—introduced by another favorite son of Texas, Kinky Friedman—is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for generations to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Willie I enjoyed the book, it is a great insight into who Willie Nelson is. His family insert and comments about the type of person Willie is was great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Roll me up and smoke me when I die This book is rambling, disjointed and repetitive. I'm a big fan of Willie's and it does offer some insight into his life but even that is limited. In my view this is a disappointing read maybe the effect to too many years smoking dope or a money grab with no regard for content value, I don't know which.

Editorial Reviews

“So many decades into his fabled life and career, Willie fans pretty much know what to expect from him. And he does not let his readers down with his Musings From the Road.
