Willie Nelson Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Born William Hugh Nelson on 29 April 1933, in Abbott, Texas USA., of English, Irish and Cherokee ancestry. Willie Nelson is known worldwide as one of the main figures in American country music.

So just how rich is musician Willie Nelson? Being active in his career as an author, actor, singer, composer, and producer for over 50 years, sources estimate that Willie Nelson has saved a net worth of $30 million.

Willie Nelson Net Worth $30 Million

Willie Nelson parents left him and his sister to be raised by his grandparents, who encouraged Willie in music, such that he started his career by writing his first song when he was just seven years old, and was involved as a leading singer and guitar player in several bands from about the age of 10, through his teens and 20s, also working as a disc jockey in Texas radio stations. In fact, Willie never graduated from college, as he dropped-out in order to focus on his music career. William Nelson’s net worth started growing significantly when the singer signed with D Records in 1958. However, it’s possible to say that William found his real self in 1973, when he signed with Atlantic Records and started focusing on outlaw country – in the 1960s Willie contributed to the development of this subgenre of country music, as an off-shoot to the rather conservative Nashville sound.

Willie Nelson as a country music representative purports the successful numbers of albums released: Willie has enlarged his net worth with the income from a total  of 68 studio albums, 37 compilation albums, 10 live albums and two soundtracks. His first released studio album was named “And Then I Wrote” (1962). Other studio albums to mention that increased Willie Nelson’s net worth are such as “Good Times” (1969), “Read Headed Stranger” (1975), “The Troublemaker” (1976), “Sings Kristofferson” (1979), and “City of New Orleans” (1984). His newest studio album is “Band of Brothers” released on June 17 2014.

Willie Nelson’s net worth also grew a lot because of his ability as an author. In total, hehas  published seven books including his autobiography named “Willie: An Autobiography” (1988). “The Facts of Life and Other Dirty Jokes”, published in 2002, was his set of recollections from his experiences in music industry. He has also published “The Tao of Willie: A Guide to the Happiness in Your Heart” (2006), and “A Tale Out of Luck” (2008), a first Nelson fictional book. “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From the Road” published in 2012 is a new autobiography written by Willie. All these publications sold well, and thus increased Willie Nelson’s net worth.

The amount of Willie Nelson’s net worth has been augmented with his performances in movies, too. Nelson first appeared in “The Electric Horseman” (1979), an adventure–romance film directed by Sydney Pollack. Following it, Willie showed up at such movies as “Barbarosa” (1982), “Once Upon a Texas Train” (1988), “Wag the Dog” (1997), “The Big Bounce” (2004), and “Swing Vote” (2008). His most recent film projects include “Get a Job” (2011), “When Angels Sing” (2011), “Shoot out of Luck” (2011), and “The Dry Gulch Kid” (2011), actually from around 30 movies in total.

In his personal life, Willie Nelson has married four times and fathered seven children. He first married Martha Matthews(1952 -1962), and the couple have two living children: their third died by suicide. 1991. Nelson next married Sirley Collie(1963-1971), then Connie Koepke(1971-88) and they had two daughters. Willie married his Annie D’Angelo in 1991, and they have two sons, and now split their lives between Hawaii and Texas.

Looks like we don't have Willie Nelson salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1Claims to have smoked pot on the roof of the White House with James Carter III, son of then President and dear old family friend Jimmy Carter.
2On the last night of his first marriage with Martha, Willie came home drunk and passed out on the bed. Willie's wife sewed him up in a sheet and then beat him with a broom and then getting away in the car with the kids, her clothes, and his clothes. Willie said there was no way he could follow her naked so that was kind of the end of it.
3Performed at the 1994 wedding reception of Microsoft's Bill Gates and Melinda Gates in Lanai, Hawaii.
4Counts Frank Sinatra among his all-time favorite singers.
5Willie and his nephew, Freddy Fletcher, became co-owners of the Austin City Limits (1975) studio and nightclub. [December 2006]
6Because Willie's favorite Martin classical acoustic guitar never had a scratch plate, his persistent use of a pick for over 30 years has worn a gaping hole through his instrument's body. Further defacement of the wooden body was caused by Willie's insistence that friends and associates inscribe their autographs on his guitar using a ball-point pen. Some of the numerous signatures collected over the years include, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, Gene Autry Leon Russell, Roger Miller, along with various football coaches and lawyers, etc.
7Willie's favorite guitar player is Django Reinhardt and he chose his 1969 Martin N-20 acoustic based on its tonal similarities to Reinhardt's guitar. Willie purchased his instrument unseen for $750 and due to its ascendancy into legendary status over the years, the Martin company issued a special limited edition line of Willie Nelson signature models in 1999.
8Willie's eco-friendly tour bus is called the "Honeysuckle Rose IV" and runs on a variety of biofuels.
9Sister Bobby Nelson is a pianist.
10In 1985, Willie had done a duet with Ray Charles called "Seven Spanish Angels". It was on the Billboard Country Hit Chart for twelve weeks, with one week as No. 1.
11Owns a selection of about 15 guitars, but the one he plays mostly on tour, is his Martin acoustic which he refers to as "Trigger", named after Roy Rogers's horse.
12Father of Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson from his marriage to Annie D'Angelo.
13Was considered for the role of Red Webster in Road House (1989), which went to Red West.
14His company, Willie Nelson Biodiesel, markets biodiesel biofuel to truck stops.
15Was raised by his paternal grandparents: William Alfred Nelson and Nancy Elizabeth Smothers.
16Children: Lana Nelson (born November 11, 1953), Susie (born May 23, 1956) and Billy (born September 16, 1958 who died in 1991), with Martha Matthews; Paula Nelson (Paula Carlene) (born October 27, 1969) and Amy Nelson (Amy Lee) (born July 6, 1973), with Connie Koepke; Lukas Nelson (Lukas Autry) (born December 25, 1988) and Micah Nelson (Jacob Micah) (born May 24, 1990), with Annie D'Angelo.
17Son of Myrtle Greenhaw and Ira Nelson.
18Inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame in Austin, Texas in March 2002.
19Formed the 1980s country music supergroup "The Highwaymen" with Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.
20He was the subject of the Toby Keith song "I'll Never Smoke Weed with Willie Again".
21When the IRS seized his possessions to sell at auction to try and collect money to pay his tax debt, many of Willie's fans bought his stuff and then gave it back to him. (It's been said that the fans did this as a way of saying thank you for all the free concerts Nelson performed in support of Farm Aid). The only major possessions not seized by the IRS was Willie's guitar and his tour bus so he could earn a living.
22Inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993 and the American Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2001.
23There is a guest character named after him in an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (2000) (titled "The Shaving").
24Is one of the three "outlaws" of country music, named because of their wild personalities, free spirits and liberal politics. The other two are Merle Haggard and the late Waylon Jennings.
25Toby Keith asked if he wanted to record a duet with him. Willie agreed after simply hearing the title of the song without even reading the lyrics: "Whiskey for My Men, Beer for My Horses".
26Attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas for one year.
27He was a member of Ray Price's Cherokee Cowboys during the 1950s.
28In addition to being a successful country singer, he is also a songwriter and wrote hits for many other singers, including "Crazy" for Patsy Cline.
29His character Billy "Catch" Pooler in the comedy movie Gone Fishin' (1997) was inspired by a real person, Loren "Totch" Brown of Chokoloskee, Florida. "Totch" had a small role in the movie Wind Across the Everglades (1958), portraying "One-Note" and acting under the name Totch Brown.

#Quote
1We've already been reincarnated about a million times, maybe. It doesn't make sense any other way. How can we be created equal if there's a guy over here sitting on the corner, blind, with no feet, trying to make it, and there's another guy out there running around in a new Cadillac with two girls on either side of him and millions of dollars coming in?
2I don't think any person has any special knowledge about what God has planned for me and you any more than me and you do.
3I think most art comes out of poverty and hard times.
4Three chords and the truth - that's what a country song is.
5Waylon Jennings once said that if everybody got up in the morning and masturbated, there wouldn't be no wars. I am not in favor of that as much as I am of pot. They should start off every morning summit with a puff or maybe just pump a little into the air conditioner. In the future, I would like to be able to push a switch and have pot released into every household all over the world.

#Trademark
1Texas accent
2Slow clipped manner of singing
3Often wears a Cowboy hat or a Bandana
4More often than not sports a beard
5Long red hair (usually braided into a ponytail)
