Reportedly, the character Buck Bonham that Willie Nelson
played is considered to have borne more than a passing similarity to the actual Willie Nelson
the person in real life. This duality was also displayed in Nelson's character Buck Bonham's life experience in the film's story. This is reflected in the movie's tagline that states: "For 20 years, he's been singing to the country. But he never figured he'd be living his own love songs.". See more
