Willie Nelson will release a collection of letters about what it means to be an American citizen in forthcoming book Willie Nelson's Letters to America. Harper Horizon will release the book on June 29th, 2021.

According to a press release, the book centers on the "endless promise and continuous obligations of all Americans -- to themselves, to one another, and to their nation -- to stand with unity, resolve, and faith."

The book, which Nelson worked on with Texas Monthly contributing editor Turk Pipkin, will also include Nelson's thoughts on music, family, leadership and reflections on lyrics from his timeless songs.

The country music legend recently released That's Life, his second album of Frank Sinatra covers. In 2020, Nelson released First Rose of Spring.
