Willie Nelson, 84, Scoffs at Retirement Questions: ‘What Do you Want Me to Quit? I Just Play Music and a Little Golf’

Willie Nelson is 84 and he’s not thinking about retiring from music –probably ever.

When asked in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning whether he’s consider hanging up his guitar, the country legend-turned-pot activist scoffed.

“What do you want me to quit? I just play music and a little golf and I don’t wanna give up either one of those!”

He also doesn’t plan on giving up pot, either.

“For myself, it’s good for me,” he said. “It keeps me from going off and doing crazy things. I can relax and play some music and sit around and visit and act like a grown-up, I think.”

In the singer-songwriter’s latest album, God’s Problem Child, the country music star reflects on his life, sometimes using a humorous approach in songs like “Still Not Dead Yet.”

In Nelson’s memoir, It’s a Long Story, released in 2015, Nelson charted his adventures and bad boy, wild, freewheeling lifestyle of drugs, women and music. The artist has released at least 110 albums during the course of his long and sensational career.

Nelson lives on a ranch outside Austin, with his fourth wife, Annie. The couple has been married for more than 31 years.
