Willie Nelson's Classic Martin N-20 guitar - Trigger. When asked why his guitar is named Trigger, Willie explains: "Roy Rogers had a horse named Trigger. I figured: "This is my horse!"

During his well publicized "discussions" with the Internal Revenue Service, Willie was so concerned that they might try to take Trigger away from him that he hid it at his manager's house for safe keeping.

..one of my all-time favorite photos. Out of all of the possessions he owned during his hassles with "the man", this is the one he cherished the most. It reminds me of an old pair of riding boots I have, put em to rest this past September. They were the most uncomfortable, holey, and mangled pieces of leather for the past three or four years, but I could never get rid of them. I had to super-glue the heel back on after Sturgis this past August, caved and bought a new pair for my sister's wedding that I rode back to Wisco for Labor Day Weekend... man are they comfortable, but it's just not the same.
