Willie Nelson is one of country music’s greatest icons, with a career spanning over 5 decades. At 84 years old, it’s no wonder his legendary career has spawned many secrets.
Nelson’s famous nickname was earned after he heard that his daughter was being abused by her husband, Nelson threatened him. No sooner did he arrive back at his house, his son-in-law drove up and start shooting at the house, to which Nelson returned fire. Nelson then set a trap and shot out the tire on his son-in-law’s car.
