Willie Nelson’s surprising disclosure in his book reawakened both his family’s and fans’ anxieties.
“Me and Paul: Untold Stories of a Fabled Friendship, the 89-year-old On the Road Again,” Nelson’s long-awaited new autobiography, was launched this month to expectant fans.
According to legend, the book made Paul English famous for life, much as his song “Me and Paul” did. In the song, Paul English paid tribute to his right-hand guy, who also served as his accountant, bodyguard, and drummer. The book had the same effect.
In addition to detailing their seven decades of relationship, Nelson revealed in the biography a previous suicide attempt, which scared many people.
According to legend, the singer of “Seven Spanish Angels” told a bar patron about a time when he was “feeling so horrible till he lay his head on some lonesome railroad line and let it heal his troubled thoughts.” As a result, he is said to have attempted suicide.
According to accounts, the country singer returned to the pub after fifteen minutes to drink more. Patsy Cline’s 1961 version of his song was a watershed point in his career, helping him establish his position in the music industry. He had successfully navigated the difficult age.
According to an unidentified source, Nelson believed he needed to put in a lot of effort because he was afraid that everything he had worked for might be lost in the end. Rather than ending his life, the renowned singer preferred to die on stage while singing, which he enjoyed the most.
Willie Nelson has no intention of leaving the music business.
Nelson said in a statement that he had no plans to retire, echoing an insider’s claim. It’s something the singer would instead not think about right now.
He started to Parade that he did not want to be concerned about his remaining time on Earth. Instead, he wants to make the most of the nice life he already has while attempting to improve it.
“‘Pay for the Day’ is the name of a song I wrote. You must do any task to earn enough money for the day. I get up and go for a short jog. I do some little exercise and have noticed that singing benefits my lungs. “This is just another thing that my entire body needs throughout this period of confinement,” he explained.
When asked what the secret to a happy life was, he advised others to “think optimistically,” just as he did when he was on the verge of committing suicide.
Nelson also intends to perform live shows in the next years in addition to these activities.
