In his memoir, Willie Nelson called this film the most "autobiographical" of all his movies. The production notes for the film say "Songwriter (1984) is not by any means a biographical portrait of Willie's life, [but] it does offer some interesting" things. See more »
"He Lost Everything...Now Its Time To Get Even." Kick back and enjoy Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson as a pair of hard-living Texans in this funny, original and very real look at the country music business. It's Willie and Kris, on the road again, sharing music and raising hell! Melinda Dillon and Rip Torn give a great performance. This movie was pretty good to watch on VHS. I don't know if this movie has come out on DVD or not. The acting wasn't too well performed...but the music was. It's an "ok" movie to enjoy watching. My carpool buddy ride to work, Tommy McClure, told me to watch this movie. He was in the "Roarers Band" in this movie.
