Monday's Willie Nelson One Cup of Java Challenge
Monday's One Cup of Java Challenge: A little Willie Nelson trivia this morning, with Willie celebrating his 75th birthday on Wednesday. For most of his career, Willie’s main guitar has been a Martin N-20 nylon-string acoustic. He’s played it so long that the constant strumming has worn a large hole into the guitar’s body. It’s this same guitar that bears the signatures of his friends and fellow musicians. Willie loves the guitar so much he gave it a name. Your One Cup question this morning – what is the name of Willie Nelson’s main guitar, a name he borrowed from a hero of his.
Answer: Willie is a big Roy Rogers fan, and he named his guitar "Trigger."
