Justin and Malone talk Willie Nelson’s “Pretty Paper” and the Fort Worth Connection

We know you know the song by Willie Nelson called “Pretty Paper.”  But what you may NOT know is that if Willie hadn’t been walking around downtown in Fort Worth by the old “Leonard’s” department store in 1963, that song probably would not exist.  This morning Justin and Malone dug into the story behind “Pretty Paper” and then played it on the Ranch for Throwback Thursday.

Check out their conversation and the song below, followed by a link to a story in the Star Telegram, where you can see a pictures of historical Fort Worth and the man about whom the song was written:
