Veteran singer-songwriter Bill Nash announced today the release of his new memoir, Saint Sinner Singer, a deeply personal and reflective telling of his "Unexpected, Redirected and Resurrected Life," out Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
"Hope. If I could give everyone one gift by way of reading this book, it would be hope,тАЭ says Nash. тАЬSure, I love telling my stories about Kristofferson and Reba and everybody else IтАЩve been so fortunate to work with, but at the end of the day, I would like anyone reading my story to come away with a feeling that they can make it through whatever life throws at them.тАЭ
In the autobiography, Nash details the ups and downs of his music career and personal life. From a border town church in Texas to record deals in Los Angeles, New York City and Nashville, NashтАЩs journey has been one unexpected turn after another. But, two things have always guided him since he was a boy: God and music. He sang his way in and sang his way out of every good and bad situation life has thrown at him.
From growing up on the road singing in his familyтАЩs band to his first meeting with тАЬjanitorтАЭ Kris Kristofferson, to his first record deal and writing songs for Diamond Rio, Dolly Parton, Larry Gatlin, Reba McEntire, Wayne Newton and Country Music Hall of Fame member Eddy Arnold, to meeting his wife and the fearful times their family has endured, Saint Sinner Singer takes readers through the triumphs and struggles.
In Chapter 6, Nash recalls the memorable encounter with Kristofferson, when his producer, Jerry Kennedy, called in the janitor to play a song for him. The janitor was Kristofferson, and the song was тАЬFor The Good TimesтАЭ Ч NashтАЩs first label single and KristoffersonтАЩs fiirst-ever cut as a songwriter. Watch Nash and Kristofferson perform the tune on The Phil Everly Show in the early 1970s here.
тАЬMy life turned in directions I never would have expected,тАЭ Nash continues. тАЬIтАЩve faced hardships I wouldnтАЩt wish on anyone, but God knew what He was doing even when I didnтАЩt understand. He put me on a better path than I ever could have planned. Now, I still get to write and sing music but with my beautiful wife, Kim, and together, weтАЩve had the privilege to help thousands of children who have survived trauma.тАЭ Nash and his wife created Champions Kids Camp (CKC), a place where kids who have experienced trauma can heal, in honor of their oldest sonтАЩs healing of Leukemia.
тАЬThe older I get, the more I think about the legacy IтАЩm leaving behind,тАЭ says Nash. тАЬIтАЩve shared part of that legacy in this book, but my hope is that the larger part is yet to be seen, not just through the music, but through all the lives weтАЩve reached at Champions Kids Camp."
