Willie Nelson’s unexpected revelation in his biography revived the fears that both his family and fans had been having.
Nelson’s long-awaited new autobiography, “Me and Paul: Untold Stories of a Fabled Friendship, the 89-year-old On the Road Again,” was released this month to eager fans.
It is stated that the book made Paul English famous for life, much like his song “Me and Paul” did. Paul English commemorated his right-hand man in the song, who also served as his accountant, bodyguard, and drummer. The book achieved the same result.
In addition to recounting their seven decades of friendship, Nelson made a confession about his previous suicide attempt in the biography, which alarmed many people.
The vocalist of “Seven Spanish Angels” purportedly told a bar patron about a period when he was “feeling so dreadful till he put his head on some lonesome train line and let it heal his troubled thoughts.” As a result, he allegedly attempted to commit suicide.
According to reports, the country singer returned to the pub after fifteen minutes to consume additional alcoholic beverages. Patsy Cline’s recording of his song in 1961 was a watershed moment in his career that helped him find his place in the music industry. He had effectively navigated the challenging era.
According to an unidentified source, Nelson believed he needed to put in a lot of effort because he was concerned that everything he had worked for would be lost in the end. Instead of killing himself, the great singer seemed to prefer to die on stage while singing, which is what he enjoys doing the most.
Willie Nelson Has No Plans to Leave the Music Business.
Nelson acknowledged in a statement that echoed the insider’s allegation that he has no plans to retire. It’s something the singer would rather not think about at this point in his life.
In a conversation with Parade, he claimed that he does not want to be concerned about his remaining time on Earth. Instead, he wishes to make the most of the good life he already has while also working to improve it as much as possible.
“‘Pay for the Day’ is the title of a song I composed. You’ll need to accomplish anything in order to make enough money for the day. I get up and jog for a few minutes. I do some little exercise, and I’ve discovered that singing is good for my lungs. During this period of confinement, this is just another thing that my entire body craves,” he explained.
When asked what the key to a happy life was, he encouraged others to “think optimistically,” just as he did when he was on the edge of suicide.
In addition to these activities, Nelson plans to perform live gigs in the coming years.
