The song was composed by Nolan in 1932, while working as a caddy and living in Los Angeles. Originally titled “Tumbling Tumble Leaves”, the song was reworked into the title “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” and into fame with the 1935 Gene Autry film of the same name.

The song has been recorded by Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers, Bing Crosby, Slim Whitman, Johnny Ray, Kate Smith, The Supremes, Mike Nesmith, jazz guitarist Grant Green and Don Everly. Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.

Willie Nelson is one of three people arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas, for possession of six ounces of marijuana. At the time Nelson was traveling from California to his ranch in Austin, Texas. He is released after posting $2,500 bond.

The prosecutor in the case, Kit Bramblett, supported not sentencing Nelson to jail due to the amount of marijuana being small, but suggested instead a US$100 fine and told Nelson that he would have him sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” for the court. Judge Becky Dean-Walker stated that Nelson had to pay the fine but did not require him to perform the song, explaining that the prosecutor was joking.

Nelson’s lawyer Joe Turner reached an agreement with the prosecutor. Nelson was set to pay a US$500 fine to avoid a two-year jail sentence with a 30-day review period, which in case of another incident would end the agreement.

The judge later rejected the agreement, claiming that Nelson was receiving preferential treatment for his celebrity status; the offence normally carried a one-year jail sentence. Regarding the status of the case, Bramblett declared that the case would remain open until it is either dismissed, or the judge changed her opinion.
