He was abandoned by his parents as a toddler. As a young struggling songwriter, he crisscrossed the country playing honky tonks and selling encyclopedias door-to-door just to feed his family. Today, Willie Nelson is an American icon and a true Texas iconoclast–but how he got there is a tale that’s little-known.

Join Kris Kristofferson, Norah Jones, John Mellencamp, biographer Joe Nick Patoski and many others as we trace the life and times of a Texas legend. It’s a one hour special from KUT’s Texas Music Matters. Amazing Grace: The Story of Willie Nelson.

Winner of the 2009 Headliners’ Awards “Best Feature Documentary” and “Grand Prize for Radio”
