"Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground" is a 1981 single from the film Honeysuckle Rose. "Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground" was written and performed by Willie Nelson. The single would be Willie Nelson's seventh number one on the country chart as a solo artist and stayed at number one for one week and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the country chart.
This song is commonly believed to have been written about Charlie Magoo, a good friend of Nelson's who happened to also be a member of The Hells Angels. This has never been confirmed or denied by Nelson who usually says he's not going to argue with a load of bikers. He did once claim the song was about his wife Connie.
