Summary:

"Abandoned by their parents as toddlers, Willie and Bobbie Nelson found their love of music almost immediately through their grandparents, who raised them in a dusty small town in east Texas. Their close relationship--which persists today--is the longest-lasting bond in either of their lives. In alternating chapters, this heartfelt dual memoir weaves together their lives as they experienced them both side-by-side and apart with powerful, emotional stories from growing up, playing music in public for the first time, and the trials they each faced in adulthood as Willie pursued a songwriting career and Bobbie faced a series of challenging relationships and a musical career that only took off when attitudes about women began to change in Texas. Bobbie, a longtime member of Willie's band, shares her life story in full here for the first time in deeply affecting chapters about her personal relationships and life as a mother and a musician with technical skills that even Willie admits surpass his own. Willie and Bobbie supported each other through unthinkable personal tragedies, and they always shared in each other's triumphs. Through dizzying highs and traumatic lows, including abusive relationships, the loss of children, and the heights of their separate and shared musical careers, Willie and Bobbie have always had each other's back." --Provided by publisher.
