Willie Nelson’s wife Annie D’Angelo proves that the fourth time is a charm for Willie. Despite his previous three marriages ending in divorce, it appears that Willie Nelson’s fourth wife is 100 percent the country music legend’s perfect match. Annie D’Angelo spent her younger years as a professional makeup artist. In fact, that’s how the pair met. After working in the makeup department for several movies during the 1980’s, she was hired to work on the makeup team for the 1986 film Stagecoach, starring Wille Nelson.On September 16, 1991, the happy couple tied the knot in Nashville, Tennessee. Since the wedding, Nelson and D’Angelo have raised two sons, Lukas and Jacob. Together, they reside in their Hawaiian home located in Maui. Why do they get along so well? Willie Nelson thanks his previous marriages for teaching him to finally make one last forever. Also, Nelson believes aging has given him the ability to see more of the world and understand relationships better. The Texas native celebrated his 85th birthday on April 29th! However, Nelson still performs regularly and even released a new album. God’s Problem Child was the country music icon’s 61st studio album, but the record would not have been possible without Annie’s help. In June of 2018, Willie provided a glimpse into the recording studio in his new music video for “Heaven Is Closed.” The song comes from his studio album titled Last Man Standing and discusses the tough topics of aging and loss. Nelson also provides us with the wisdom that he has accumulated throughout his career and his 85 years on this earth. The lyrics also supply listeners with Nelson’s classic humor and stubbornness. It was written alongside Buddy Cannon and the Texas native finds peace as “Heaven Is Closed” questions an eternity in heaven and hell. Instead of coming to a conclusion about where our souls end up, Nelson offers the idea that the two destinations are similar. He sings, “Could it be that hell is heaven and heaven is hell and each one are both the same thing?”
Since D’Angelo entered Nelson’s life back in 1991, Willie Nelson has had fewer legal issues. Unfortunately, the country music star has also suffered several life threatening medical conditions. Now, his wife encourages him to get outside and engage in physical activities such as biking and swimming. Willie is going strong and recently share this photo with long time friend Kris Kristofferson who co-starred in the movie where Willie first met Annie.
On top of more exercise, Annie D’Angelo has helped Nelson consume less unhealthy food, especially bacon. Even though finding true love hasn’t always been easy for Nelson, it is pretty clear that Annie D’Angelo has been a huge blessing for him. We wish the couple many more years of joy!
