Can you believe that Willie Nelson once played football? While Nelson was in high school he was the halfback on the football team. He also served as a guard on his school's basketball team and played shortstop in baseball.
Nelson just celebrated his 83rd birthday at the end of April, and he's going as strong as ever. He was recently selected as the first country music artist to receive the distinguished Gershwin Prize, and he recorded an entire album of Gershwin songs to mark the occasion.
