The Phenomenal Career of Willie Nelson Is Truly a Family Affair. Meet Willie’s Sister and Bandmate Bobbie.
When you go to a Willie Nelson concert, you get a lot more than Willie. You get Willie Nelson and Family. And 'family' is literal.
That lady playing the beautiful piano at Willie show's is his sister Bobbie. At 84, Bobbie is older than Willie by two years, and has been on the road and in the studio with her little brother for decades. Remember the iconic Willie Nelson albums The Troublemaker, Shotgun Willie, Phases and Stages and Red Headed Stranger? Well then, you've experienced the piano magic of Bobbie Nelson. Just this past year the two released their December Day album to critical acclaim.
To find out more about Bobbie Nelson, let's have someone interview her. How about little brother Willie?
As you heard, Bobbie released her debut solo album Audiobiography in 2008. Their brother Doyle also was a part of the 'family', although not so much in a musical sense. He drove the bus for the band, as well as several other rock and roll bands. Doyle passed away earlier this year at the age of 77.
Now, more with the legendary Willie Nelson and sister Bobbie.
