American musician and activist Willie Nelson’s house is on a 500-acre ranch in Spicewood, TX known as “Luck, Texas”. Originally built in 1985 as the set for the film version of Nelson’s concept album “Red Headed Stranger”, Luck features a recreation of an Old West town. Nelson was so fond of the set, that he wanted it preserved and built his own home up the road on the property. Nelson also owns a home in Maui, Hawaii.

Over the years, Nelson primarily used the Luck, Texas town as a hangout spot to play cards and music with his family and friends. Though the old-fashioned atmosphere was the draw of the locale, poker tables, an equipped bar, and a makeshift boxing gym rounded out the amenities of the site. In 2012, an annual music festival called Luck Reunion began and is held at the ranch on the location of the “Red Headed Stranger” set.

In 2020, Nelson and Luck Ranch began a partnership with TerraPurezza, a business and educational outlet that focuses on regenerative agriculture and sustainability.

Willie Nelson’s net worth is $25 million. Though he is known best as a singer and songwriter, he has appeared in many television programs and films and has written nine books. Due to poor investments in the 1980s, Nelson owed $32 million dollars in back taxes to the IRS in 1990.

Nelson has been arrested several times for possession of marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms, and was banned from the Bahamas for marijuana possession in 1977.

Willie Nelson has been married four times and has seven children. He shares two children with his current wife, Annie D’Angelo, whom he married in 1991.
