On Monday night, Marren Morris guest-hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live! and her first guest was none other than country music legend Willie Nelson. And because you can’t talk to Nelson without mentioning weed at least once, he discusses his pot business, poker, and his autobiography “Letters to America” which he released in June.
The interview took place remotely since Nelson’s in Texas. He said he’ll go back on the road in August. Watch the rest of the interview below.
Meanwhile, a docuseries titled “Willie Nelson And Family” is currently in the works. Produced by Blackbird Presents and Sight Unseen, it will explore the life and music of Nelson. It’s being directed by Thom Zimny and Oren Moverman, and it features his family and friends.
“Words like ‘honored,’ ‘excited’ and ‘humbled’ don’t come close to describing the way we feel about being entrusted with telling Willie’s story,” Zimny and Moverman said in a press release. “And what a story it is! We are celebrating the music, the career, the long road, the family, friends and history. But, more than anything, we are piecing together a narrative – one never before seen in its entirety – about an extraordinary man with a unique ability to bring people together.”
