From June to October, Nelson headlined the annual Outlaw Music Festival Tour. and released the album, “Bluegrass” (with newly recorded studio performances of 12 Willie Nelson-penned classics showcasing Nelson with a bluegrass ensemble). A new book, “Energy Follows Thought” (with stories behind the lyrics of 160 of his favorite songs, along with never-before-seen photos and ephemera), was released Nov. 23. On Nov. 3, Nelson was inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
