* Bobbie Nelson is the sister of Willie Nelson. At age sixteen she married Bud Fletcher, who formed his own band, The Texans. She joined on the piano, while her brother joined on vocals and guitar. The band was dissembled in 1955 after she divorced Fletcher. In 1973 she joined Willie Nelson on the piano during his sessions with Atlantic Records, that produced The Troublemaker, Shotgun Willie, Phases and Stages and Red Headed Stranger. The same year she joined Willie's band, The Family, full time and began touring with her brother. In 2008, she released her solo debut album, Audiobiography.. Bobbie's Taurus Moon is conjunct Willie's Chiron and her Capricorn Saturn is conjunct his Ascendant (see his chart here). Good solid synastry for this sister-brother duo!
For more info, see her Wikipedia biography.
