Happy birthday, Willie Nelson! The country legend turned 84 today, which is a huge feat for anyone. It’s an especially big deal when you are a prolific artist who is still creating great music and constantly touring. In celebration of his birthday, we’ve created a comprehensive playlist that features some of Willie’s best songs.

We’ve also included a few tracks written in honor of the Red Headed Stranger, and some cuts from his brand new record, God’s Problem Child. And we can’t forget all of the hits he’s penned for other big artists. From Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” to “Folsom Prison Blues,” the amount of legendary tracks Nelson has written is truly mind-boggling. Whether you’re a longtime fan or just now getting into his songbook, today is the perfect day to listen to all his best tunes.
