In February, Mr. Nelson released “That’s Life,” his second album of standards made famous by Frank Sinatra. The first album was “My Way” (2018).
In June, Mr. Nelson shared his thoughts on America, family, faith and music in a new book, “Willie Nelson’s Letters to America.”
And, of course, Mr. Nelson remains famous for hits such as “On the Road Again.”
