Golf: The Road to Insanity
Willie—tells his own true story of a boy who lived in the poverty of the great depression. The fifth child of a God-fearing, frail artistic mother, she died when Willie was six years old. And a somewhat restless road-wise handsome horse-trading father, who later became a travelling medicine man.
"Daddy and Mother drove off in the night with a horse and buggy, eloped and were married."
Willie talks of his childhood out on Grandmaw's farm, the funny and the not so funny things. The time he encountered the nude lovers back at the creek.
Then there was the big car-theft ring conspiracy that came so very close to home.
Willie was an orphan for the second time, Maw died when he was ten.
Though life found a way to kick this little boy around, he was a survivor.
He grew up to marry a sweetheart. They're children became entertainers and recording artists.
After a heartbreaking divorce, then the tragedy of losing his beloved son, Willie himself became a Nashville published songwriter and recording artist.
