Willie Nelson's recent autobiography It's a Long Story details the singer-songwriter's upbringing in Texas and his bumpy musical journey as he rose to fame and ran into trouble with the law. In this first of a two-part conversation at his home in Hawaii, Willie Nelson tells Robert Scheer that he considers his bare bones upbringing by his grandparents in Abbott, Texas during the Depression to be an ideal childhood.
