Willie Nelson happened to be one of the guests. I didn’t grow up listening to country music, although I owned one Willie Nelson record. By the end of the evening, I was a huge fan. Willie was playing the classic songs “Night Life,” “Funny How Time Slips Away,” and “Crazy,” and I would try to play along. His guitar playing and lyrics were mesmerizing. I couldn’t believe this was the guy who wrote these songs. The guitar was passed around the room and other singers sang Hank Williams tunes or ones they had recently written.
