Best singer ever in a truly fantastic film !
10 January 2011 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Willie Nelson is my favorite he been my favorite singer ever since i heard his song "The harder they come" a version of jimmy cliff which amazed me! I love the man dearly and had to buy and see this film and I'm glad i did i was not slightly disappointed. All songs i love and story line great it pretty much his life of being on the road away from family and on drugs. Good story line which was entertaining throughout the whole film.

It for all Willie and country music fans. I don't think many non fans of them two will like his film but if you do you would definitely love it so purchase this DVD!
