In a picture posted on Lukas Nelson’s Instagram page, Annie and Willie Nelson are sitting cross-legged. The 89-year-old man is smiling and pointing to a message written in green, red, and white. “Happy holidays, love from the Nelsons,” Lukas writes as a caption.

Nelson was as affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as any other artist. He went to great lengths to avoid getting sick with a disease that has killed millions. He got a positive test result in May, but he didn’t tell anyone how dangerous it was until August.

He told New York Times Magazine, “There were a couple of times when I wasn’t sure if he was going to make it.”

At the time, the magazine said that it was getting harder and harder for him to walk. It seemed to help to sing and play the guitar.

Still, Nelson put out A Beautiful Time, a solo album of original songs and covers that got him nominated for a Grammy in 2023. He was also nominated for a Grammy in two other country categories, making him one of the most nominated people in country music for the ceremony in February.

How did Willie find true love and lose his son in the same year?

Willie has had a full life over the years. He did make some mistakes along the way, though. His failed marriages are the ones that stand out the most. Martha Matthews was the first woman he married. He married her in 1952, and they had three children together: Billie Nelson, Lana Nelson, and Susie Nelson. Willie and Martha got a divorce in 1963, which was sad.

Shirley Collie Nelson came after Martha, but it seems like she and Willie didn’t stay together for long. Sometime in the 1970s, the musician married Connie Koepke. They had two daughters, Paula Nelson and Amy Lee Nelson. They broke up in 1988, which was sad, and Willie moved on again.

In 1986, Willie met a makeup artist on the set of a movie, and they fell in love. Annie was Willie’s fourth chance at a long-term relationship, and it seemed like she was the one that worked. They got married and had two sons, Lukas and Micah, together. Billy died in the same year, which was sad.

How were Willie’s youngest sons a blessing for him?

After Billie’s death, which broke Willie’s heart, he had a lot on his mind. He was lucky to have his dear friend Annie to help him. And Annie got another shock that put everything back in perspective: she found out she was pregnant. The first of his two young boys, Lukas, was born in 1988. Micah came along two years later, in 1990.

At the time, Willie wanted to raise his two new “blessings” where he had grown up, in Abbott. He bought a house from a local person, and he, Annie, and their two new boys moved into the cosy place. Willie started touring with his band after a while, and he decided to bring his boys with him.

Nelson got married to Annie in 1991. He has a total of eight kids from different relationships.
