A-

Willie Nelson leads us on a tour of his homeland, Texas—to his old church where he sings Amazing Grace, to Austin's musical main street where he sits in with Ray Charles, to the Rio Grande where he floats and strums and to his annual July 4 picnic where he plays some hits: Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys, Always on My Mind, On the Road Again. Like Willie's music, the show is simple and pure, nice and easy. It's a great way to spend an hour.
