World Café makes a pilgrimage to Willie Nelson's tour bus! Willie released an album called Last Man Standing just days before his 85th birthday. Willie talks about how the deaths of dear friends like Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings influenced the title track, the prank he pulled when he was in the hospital recovering from a collapsed lung and shares insights about his favorite form of relaxation. Giggles ensue.
Legendary country singer Jessi Colter has had an interesting life as a successful recording artist and wife to Waylon Jennings, all of which she recounts in her book, An Outlaw and a Lady. Also, a special Latin Roots segment featuring Rahsaan.
