There seem to be several sites that that describe Willie Nelson as having Native American (specifically Cherokee) heritage.

However, if you dig deeper you find very little evidence of any Cherokee blood in his ancestry, just a lot of speculation.

Willie Nelson did marry a 16 year old Cherokee girl when he was 17.

From the sounds of it, they had a pretty wild relationship, with frequent drinking and brawling taking place between the two of them. Apparently she smashed a bottle of whiskey on his head when she caught him with another woman!
