Here’s the deal — Willie Nelson has played a part in many good stories. Heck, there is nothing like a good Willie story, and this one just might be one of the best we have heard in a long time.

According to an April 20 story in Rolling Stone, Lil Wayne recently reminisced about some special moments he shared alongside Willie and Kid Rock during the 2008 CMA Awards. Set to collaborate on the song “Sweet Home Alabama,” there was only one problem.

Lil Wayne had no idea how to play the dang song.

“Willie Nelson walks up. He comes up, he says, ‘Let me show you,'” Lil Wayne begins. “I played it with him and then boom, the curtains go up and it’s show time. I got to play ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ with Kid Rock and Willie Nelson.”

“I told Willie Nelson, I said, ‘I heard you smoked Snoop under the table.’ He said, ‘Right under that motherfucker.’ I said, ‘I ain’t Snoop.’ Know that, know that.”

Makes ‘ya love Willie even more, huh?
