Willie George Haggard is an ageing country singer. He lives in a large old house just outside Nashville and has many country music hits to his name, most of which he wrote himself. Willie George used to appear regularly at the Grand Ole Opry. He blogs at My Bucket's Got A Hole In It (for which, I'm sorry to say, I've temporarily lost the link).
What is the best novel you've ever read? > Tough question. How do I choose just one? But I'll go for All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. Tell you one thing though - I hated his No Country for Old Men even without reading it. Who does he think he is, layin' down the law on my musical taste?
What is your favourite movie? > The Big Country.
Can you name a major moral, political or intellectual issue on which you've ever changed your mind? > I used to have a dreadful attitude to women, but I've been cured of that. Also, I used to lie, cheat and step on people's feet, but now I'm saved.
If you could effect one major policy change in the governing of your country, what would it be? > There are people in this country who work hard every day... The fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay, and it's time a few of them were recognized.
If you could choose anyone, from any walk of life, to be President, who would you choose? > Emmylou Harris.
If you were to relive your life to this point, is there anything you'd do differently? > If I may use this answer to send out a message to someone, what I'd like to say is: I love you and I miss you, I'm so sorry that I did you wrong.
What would you call your autobiography? > In the Country of Country.I love to dance, oh me, oh my.
What is your most treasured possession? > My coat of many colors.
If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? > Sue.
What talent would you most like to have? > To be able to play harmonica like Mickey Raphael.
