Texas-born artist, Willie Nelson, whose actual birthday was incorrectly recorded by doctor, celebrated his birthday twice today, and yesterday. The Abbott native celebrates his birthday twice a year due to the fact of being born on the heels of midnight on April 29, 1933. His birth date, however, was only registered at the courthouse on April 30. Nelson was singing in honky tonks by the time he was 13 years old thanks to his parents who bought him his first guitar at the age of six. He was already writing his own songs by the time he turned seven. The singer’s musical career took off after serving in the Air Force. Rolling Stone paid honour to Nelson’s birthday on their most recent cover labelled “The Weed Issue”.
