NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Willie Nelson has proven to be one of America’s most prolific songwriters. Turns out he’s no slouch when it comes to memoirs, either: He has a new one due in November.

Nelson will release “Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die” on Nov. 13. Publisher William Morrow says the American music icon will tell never-before-heard stories about his life, family, music, politics, Texas, religion and favorite recreational activity.

A news release says the book will include contributions from family and friends, artwork by his son Micah and a forward by author, musician and friend Kinky Friedman.

Nelson has published a number of books on several topics since his first autobiography in 1988.
