Willie Nelson – Country Star Cameos on ‘The Simpsons’

Willie Nelson plays an integral role in a year 2000 episode of ‘The Simpsons’ called “Behind the Laughter.” It’s a mockumentary of the way VH1 creates Behind the Music. After 11 successful years on television, the family is unable to avoid the trappings of fame and success and soon find themselves jailed, broke and not speaking to each other. Nelson puts on a phony awards show to bring them all back together, and it works — or it seems to. At the end, Homer says the 2000 season will be the show’s last. Obviously, it wasn’t. Nelson was one of two country artists to make a cameo that year.
