In 2023 Willie 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 in November. On Nov. 3, 2023 Nelson was inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
