Happy birthday Willie Nelson!

The country music pioneer turns 83-years-old today!

By Kyle MacLelland, Larry King Now

Willie Nelson is ringing in his 83rd birthday today and the staff at 'Larry King Now' is excited to wish the country music icon the happiest of the happiest! Willie — who, of course, is also known for his marijuana legalization advocacy – is one of our team's all-time favorite guests. Back in 2014, Larry ventured to the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles to interview Willie aboard his tour bus. The two dished on everything from the crooner's longstanding career and sex symbol status, to his pension for pot and those infamous braids!

Enjoy some special moments from the interview as well as the full conversation below! And most importantly — HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIE!
