Willie Nelson, Writes Forward to Nashville based Artist, Corey Frizzell’s Up-Coming Book

Country Music Icon, Willie Nelson, Writes
Forward to
Nashville based Artist, Corey Frizzell’s
Up-Coming Book
Nashville, TN – Country
Music Legend Willie Nelson, even at
79 may be one of the busiest guys in the music industry, but he still found the
time to write the forward to Nashville based writer and artist, Corey Frizzell’s,
new up-coming book “Nashville’s Honky
Tonk History,”
which will be part of Arcadia Publishing’s Images
of America
series.
Frizzell inked a publishing deal with leading
national publisher, Arcadia Publishing, to author a new book on Nashville’s
Honky Tonk History, in June of 2012, a subject close to Frizzell’s heart being
of the Lefty Frizzell
lineage. The book has a proposed release date of June, during CMA of 2013. 
Established in 1993 and based out of Mount
Pleasant, SC, Arcadia Publishing is the leading publisher in the United States
for local history, with a catalog of more than 8,000 titles in print and
hundreds of new titles released every year.
Nelson, like countless
others, had been influenced by Corey’s uncle, the late Lefty Frizzell. “To
Lefty From Willie”
 is a tribute album to Lefty Frizzell recorded in 1977 by Nelson.
The album features some of the biggest hits by Frizell like “I
Never Go Around Mirrors”
and “That’s the Way Love Goes.”
“I couldn’t be more excited about having a living
legend like Willie Nelson write the forward to my book on Nashville Honky
Tonks. There is no one else better to have done it than Willie with all his Honky
Tonk history here in Nashville. As a lot of people know I am also an artist and
I had the honor of creating a portrait personally for Willie back in 2006 but
having him do this for me is the icing on the cake.” – Corey Frizzell
The Frizzell family, most famous for
its prominence on the Country Music Charts, is now witnessing the artistic
successes of the second generation. Although he has siblings following in the
Frizzell music footsteps, who have accepted the challenge of emerging from the
giant shadow first cast by the family music patriarch, Lefty Frizzell, Corey
chose a different path, a path to create his own shado
w. 

Corey falls somewhere in the middle of the six
children spanning four decades of Allen Frizzell, former Nashville recording
artist and younger brother of the Legendary Lefty Frizzell and Country Star,
David Frizzell.
 


Frizzell has been a Golden Gloves Boxing
Champion
, acted in music videos and cast for two roles in the
original Stephen King movie, “Children of The Corn.” If
that’s not interesting enough, he’s now a writer, producer, manager, boxing
coach and visual artist in high demand, creating custom portraits of the stars
for the stars.
In
2006, with royal country music blood running through his veins, Frizzell came
full circle being named Nashville’s Artist to the Stars for his
artistic collaboration with some of Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, Americana and
Roots music’s biggest names,
including George Jones, Randy Travis,
Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Mark Newton, Carl Jackson, Mark
Chesnutt, Gene Watson and Jerrod Niemann to name a few.
