Willie Hugh Nelson (født 30. april 1933) er en amerikansk countrysanger og sangskriver, forfatter, poet, skuespiller og aktivist. Han nåede sin største berømmelse i Outlaw Country i 1970'erne, og er stadig ikonisk, især i amerikansk populærkultur.

Nu, i sine 70'ere, fortsætter Willie Nelson med at turnere og optræde ved koncerter og fundraisere sammen med andre store musikere, herunder Bob Dylan, Neil Young, og Dave Matthews. Han fortsætter også med at indspille albums, gerne i nye genrer, så som reggae, blues, jazz, folkemusik og populær musik.
