Humor Is a Way of Life for Willie Nelson

CMT Hot 20 Countdown Interview Airs This Weekend

Willie Nelson is always good for a joke.

He loves them, and before he and Katie Cook wrapped their CMT Hot 20 Countdown interview on his bus in San Diego, they exchanged a few clean ones.

“I went on this blind date and I told the guy I’d meet him in the bar,” Cook said. “I sat exactly where I would be, he comes walking over and he was like, ’Are you Katie?’ I’m like, ’Are you John?’ He said, ’Yeah.’ I said, ’I’m not Katie.'”

“That’s good,” Nelson said. “I’ve got a drop joke that you might like: Joke was on the second floor of this hotel, too close to the window and he fell out on the ground. This guy walks up and says, ’What happened?’ He said, ’I don’t know I just got here.'”

Humor is at the heart of how Nelson looks at life — and death. Rumors and hoaxes about the music icon’s untimely end have followed the singer since his 1980 No. 1 “On the Road Again” and he takes them all in stride.
