“On the Road Again” is a song made famous by country music singer Willie Nelson.
The song, about life on tour, came about when the executive producer of Honeysuckle Rose approached Nelson about writing the song for the film’s soundtrack. “On the Road Again” became Nelson’s 9th Country & Western No. 1 hit overall (6th as a solo recording act) in November 1980, and became one of Nelson’s most recognizable tunes. In addition, the song reached No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 7 on the Adult Contemporary chart. It was his biggest pop hit to that time and won him a Grammy Award for Best Country Song a year later.
