dc.description.abstractAs an assistant curator at a literary archives collection, I’m sometimes called upon to explain why something called a "Texas Music Collection" exists as part of the Southwestern Writers Collection. It’s a good question, and the best answer, I’ve found, is to pull out one of our most treasured items. No, it’s not the 1555 edition of Cabeza de Vaca’s La Relación y Comentarios, considered the first written account of Texas and the Southwest and one of the rarest books in the world. This is something even more special to many Texans. It’s a little handmade book of original songs, put together by Willie Nelson when he was about 11 years old. When you see Willie’s songs written down on paper, it’s easier to understand how musicians belong in something called a "Writers" collection. Because musicians, as we all know, are also poets.en_US
