When the siblings spoke to TODAY's Harry Smith to promote the book in November 2020, Willie Nelson gushed about his "little" sister's musical talented, which was apparent in childhood

"My little sister was always on the piano doing great music. I would sit there on the piano stool beside her and try to figure out what the hell she was doing," the 10-time Grammy winner recalled, laughing
