With a career spanning 6 decades Willie Nelson is TRULY a living legend (not to mention the coolest person on the planet...well we think so) He released his first single in 1957 with little success, in fact it didn't even chart! While working as a DJ in Houston Nelson would write songs that would become country standards, including "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Hello Walls", "Pretty Paper", and "Crazy". It wasn't until the late 60's early 70's that he would find success as a recording artist and he scored his very FIRST #1 song on this day October 5th 1975 and well, he just didn't stop after that (thankfully)
