Last week, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel brought Jimmy Kimmel Live to Austin, Texas during the annual South By Southwest festival. While there, music legend Willie Nelson stopped by to share stories and laughs with Jimmy. Watch above.

Before the interview, Jimmy invites Willie up to sing "To Austin, I Can't Love You More" -- a SXSW parody based on Willie's duet with Julio Iglesias, "Para Todas Las Chicas (To All The Girls I've Loved Before)."

Afterward, Jimmy talks about a charity event that was held at Willie's house earlier in the week. Nelson jokes what his biggest problem is, which is keeping himself at his own house instead of running around the world. The two talk about Willie's upcoming book, It's A Long Story, and Willie shares his memories about hopping a train to California and smoking pot on the roof of the White House.

They touch on Willie's upcoming new release with Merle Haggard titled Django & Jimmie, and we are treated to a few verses from the album's first single, "It's All Going To Pot." Kimmel informs Willie that his braids sold for $37,000 at a charity auction, to which Willie suggests that the braids be planted to see if they'll grow. Towards the end, Nelson discusses how he dealt with Japan's strict anti-pot policy before sharing a couple jokes involving a grandfather clock and Alzheimer's.

It's A Long Story will be released on May 5th. You can pre-order it on Amazon (Hardcover, Kindle).
