Honeysuckle Rose (also known as On the Road Again) is a 1980 romantic drama film directed by Jerry Schatzberg and starring Willie Nelson, Dyan Cannon and Amy Irving.


Buck Bonham (Willie Nelson) is a country singer, with a good family, struggling to find national fame. He juggles his music career with his responsibilities to his wife and son. He has everything going his way until the daughter of his former guitarist joins his tour. The road leads to temptation, which leads to his downfall. The only question is will his family and friends stand by him?



In 1981, Willie Nelson was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "On the Road Again". Amy Irving won a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Supporting Actress. Roger Ebert called the film sly and entertaining, but said that the story was predictable and disappointing.[1] The film grossed over $17 million. It was screened out of competition at the 1981 Cannes Film Festival.[2]
