The music icon who has transcended both country and rock genres is a prolific songwriter authoring more than 2,500 songs, among them hits recorded by others, as well as musician, concert performer and actor. And while even acting has earned him accolades, Nelson leads with his music, releasing nearly 300 albums. He is recognized worldwide as an American music icon who has thrived for five decades with his music, acting, and social causes such as Farm Aid and as a champion of bio-diesel.
Nelson even has a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor named after him as a mode for that company to contribute to Farm Aid, the annual concert event dedicated to assisting family farms, and which was organized in 1985 by Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp, raising more than $30 million since then. Nelson’s songwriting, music hits, collaborations and films comprise a body of work that readily brand him as an international entertainment “legend.”
