This should be all you need to show Willie Nelson does gospel music[edit]

You must not know anything about Willie Nelson's career or his music. He wrote the song Family Bible, one of the most beloved gospel songs of all time. He has recorded gospel albums and sang gospel songs. They are all over Youtube and Amazon. Some of this stuff you should be able to pick up simply by being alive. Use your head and do YOUR research. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lion1407 (talkcontribs) 21:09, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

@Lion1407: despite "what I know or not" a reader looking to find out about Nelson, doesn't know anything either, that's why we are here to build a place where you can look up facts, genre changes to any artist and as "anything" added to this Encyclopida needs sources to back up all claims. One song or even 2,3 songs does not mean you're "in that genre" it's not impossible for a punk band to release a heavy metal song or album. I'm not saying you're wrong, you just need to back up your claims, for the readers. Mlpearc (open channel) 23:40, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Thats five albums. He also ends every one of his farmaid concerts by inviting the gospel group the Blackwoods to end the show with a medley "will the circle be unbroken" and "ill fly away."

He has also done countless lives gospel performances.

Need anything else? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lion1407 (talkcontribs) 14:36, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

I´ll get into this to clarify that Nelson is a multi-genre kind of guy. While he did release a reggae album in 2005, we know he is not a reggae artist. Now, talking about Gospel: that's practically the foundation of his whole style, along with country music, blues and jazz. What characterizes his music is the blend of all of this genres! Those are his roots and what defined him as an artist!

There's a place for all of those genres during his usual set or bunch of album releases, and all of them represent him. I guess you can try to label him under one, but a serious listener of his kind of music knows that there's a thin blurry line to say what's blues, what's country and where the gospel begins in an artist like Nelson. Like Hank Williams and going to Merle Haggard he's a complete product of his time and environment. And that means YES, he is gospel as much as he is country, blues and jazz!--GDuwenTell me! 18:59, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Please edit the final sentence of section 2.2, "Outlaw County and Success (1972-1989)". The sentence contains a simple grammatical error, and should be changed from: "Nelson frequently visited the White House, where according to the biography by Joe Nick Patoski, Willie Nelson: An Epic Life, where he smoked marijuana on the White House roof." To: "Nelson frequently visited the White House, where according to the biography by Joe Nick Patoski, Willie Nelson: An Epic Life, he smoked marijuana on the White House roof."
