Willie Nelson Turns 80

We have a birthday today! Willie Nelson, everyone's favorite pot-smoking, outlaw-leaning, standard-crooning country megastar, was born on this date in 1933. Yes, he's 80. That's awesome. And after the tragic loss just last week of George Jones, we're perhaps better situated to appreciate him: his hits, his influence, his iconic American aura. So here are a few playlists and album guides in tribute to the country megastar, from a sampling of his best-ever stuff to a deep dive into his revelatory 1973 breakthrough, Shotgun Willie, along with a few portals into other country gods, outlaw and otherwise. Enjoy. And Willie, make a wish.
