Me and Sister Bobbie



The untold story of Willie Nelson and his sister, Bobbie, who have supported each other through personal tragedies and triumphs and always connected through their family’s love of music.

In alternating chapters, this heartfelt dual memoir weaves together their lives as they experienced them both side-by-side and apart with powerful, emotional stories from growing up, playing music in public for the first time, and the trials they each faced in adulthood as Willie pursued a songwriting career and Bobbie faced a series of challenging relationships and a musical career that only took off when attitudes about women began to change in Texas. The memoir is Bobbie’s first book, and in it she shares her life story in full for the first time. Her deeply affecting chapters delve into her personal relationships and life as a mother and a musician with technical skills that even Willie admits surpass his own. Willie and Bobbie supported each other through unthinkable personal tragedies, and they always shared in each other’s triumphs. Through dizzying highs and traumatic lows, including abusive relationships, the loss of children, and the heights of their separate and shared musical careers, Willie and Bobbie have always had each other’s back.

Their story is a poignant, lyrical statement of how family always finds the way.
