Songwriter is a 1984 music movie starring country western legend Willie Nelson in a story loosely based on his real life experiences as a songwriter trying to make a living in the music industry. Nelson plays Doc Jenkins, an aging country western composer responsible for several hit songs, but due to recording contracts and copyright laws isn't making much money. He makes a living on the road, but he's tired of moving constantly. He dreams of making the home he dreamed of with his ex-wife years ago, but he fears Honey (Melinda Dillon) won't take him back. The film follows Doc's journey as he tries to find a new place for himself in the music business, a place that will allow him to live a normal life. He begins managing other musicians like Blackie Buck (Kris Kristofferson) and Gilda (Lesley Ann Warren). Songwriter is a heartfelt tale of an artist's struggle to find a middle ground between his passion and his personal life.moreless
