Fears that Willie Nelson’s family and fans had been harboring were rekindled by his unexpected admission in his memoir.
This month, enthusiastic admirers were treated to Nelson’s much anticipated new autobiography, “Me and Paul: Untold Stories of a Fabled Friendship, the 89-year-old On the Road Again.”
Paul English’s song “Me and Paul” is said to have made him famous for life, just like the book did. In the song, Paul English honored his right-hand man, who was also his bodyguard, accountant, and drummer. The book produced the same outcome.
In the biography, Nelson not only talked about their seven decades of friendship but also revealed, to the horror of many, that he had attempted suicide before.
“Seven Spanish Angels” singer allegedly related to a bargoer how he was “feeling so dreadful till he put his head on some lonesome train line and let it heal his troubled thoughts” at a certain period of time. He apparently made an attempt at suicide as a result.
After fifteen minutes, the country singer reportedly went back to the bar to finish off some drinks. The 1961 version of Patsy Cline’s song marked a turning point in his career and aided in his assimilation into the music business. He had managed to get through the difficult time.
An unnamed insider claimed that Nelson felt he had to work very hard because he was afraid that everything he had worked so hard for might be lost in the end. The legendary singer appeared to prefer dying on stage while performing, which is what he does best, than taking his own life.
There are no plans for Willie Nelson to leave the music industry.
Nelson stated that he has no plans to retire in a statement that repeated the insider’s claims. The singer would prefer not to consider it at this time in his life.
He said he didn’t want to worry about how much time he had left on Earth in a talk with Parade. Rather, he wants to maximize the wonderful life he already has while simultaneously making every effort to make it better.
“The song ‘Pay for the Day’ is one I wrote. Any task will be necessary if you want to earn enough cash for the day. I get up and go for a short jog. Singing is an excellent exercise for my lungs, so I’ve found that it helps. This is just something more my entire body desires during this confinement period, he said.
Just like he did when he was on the verge of death, he advised others to “think optimistically” in response to the question of what makes a good life.
Nelson intends to engage in live performances in the upcoming years in addition to these endeavors.
