Born Willie Hugh Nelson on the 29th April 1933, in Abbott, Texas USA, he is the son of Ira Doyle Nelson and his wife Myrle Marie.

He dominated the country music scene over the next decade with the albums “The Sound in Your Mind” (1976), which also topped the chart, then “The Trouble of Your Mind” (1976), and “The Troublemaker”, released the same year.
His most successful album was released in 1978, entitled “Stardust”, which topped the US Country and Canadian Country charts, and achieved multiple platinum status in Australia, the US, and Canada. Since the end of the ‘70s, his career has declined somewhat, though he has continued to record. So far, he has over 90 studio albums, solo and collaborations included.
