The book, set to publish Sept. 15 via Random House, shares the siblings’ story of being abandoned by their parents as young children and their resulting tight-knit, eight-decade bond. The dual memoir, told in alternating chapters, shares recollections of their personal lives and careers. Bobbie, a pianist and singer, joined Nelson’s band in the ’70s, and has collaborated with Willie on albums of gospel music, including I’d Rather Have Jesus (1986), Gospel: Old Time Religion (1992), How Great Thou Art (1996), and Farther Along: The Gospel Collection (2013). In 2008, she released her own album, Audiobiography.
Additionally, a picture book from Willie and Bobbie, penned with Chris Barton and tentatively titled Sister, Brother, Family: Our Childhood in Music, is set to released in Fall 2021. The book will be edited by Frances Gilbert, Editor-in-Chief of Doubleday Books for Young Readers.
