In alternating chapters, this heartfelt dual memoir, Me and Sister Bobbie by Willie Nelson, Bobbie Nelson and David Ritz, weaves together both their stories as they experienced them side by side and apart. The Nelsons share powerful, emotional moments from growing up, playing music in public for the first time, and facing trials in adulthood, as Willie pursued songwriting and Bobbie faced a series of challenging relationships and a musical career that took off only when attitudes about women began to change in Texas. The memoir is BobbieÕs first book, and in it she candidly shares her life story in full for the first time. Her deeply affecting chapters delve into her personal relationships and life as a mother and as a musician with technical skills that even Willie admits surpass his own. In his poignant stories, Willie shares the depth of his bond with his sister, and how that bond carried him through his most troubled moments. Willie and Bobbie have supported each other through unthinkable personal heartbreak, and theyÕve always shared in each otherÕs victories. Through dizzying highs and traumatic lows, spanning almost nine decades of life, Willie and Bobbie have always had each otherÕs back.
