not bad from country legend


I've never been a big Willie fan, but this album is ver good! The Bob Song is a cover of Big & Rich's song off their LP album. The song Worry B Gone with Kenny Chesney is very good as well. this is a great buy for anyone that loves country music!

Willie is the man!

It's the music

Around a thousand albums (and counting...) and Willie Nelson continues to amaze me. This album is sad, romantic, funny, and therapeutic all at the same time. Thank you, Willie, for yet another masterpiece. Keep it up!!

In Great Shape


Willie performed several of these songs live at the House of Blues Orlando and I was in the audience. It was the first time I had witnessed this American Master and his Family of Masters. The energy and creativity in the show are reflected in this album. All the songs here did not appeal to me, but that would not discourage me from buying this album. I chose about six of the songs and they were filled with warmth and love and direction. That has been Willie's message for the past 40+ years I have known of his music. His guitar work and voice have only gotten better and are full of rich, direct tones. The band has been together for years and are truly operating as one finely tuned machine. They make working look fun and in the process make their art easy to understand. Thank You Willie and Family.

About Willie Nelson

Even before he became the Red Headed Stranger, Willie Nelson was already a Nashville songwriting legend, providing Patsy Cline with her 1961 signature tune, “Crazy.” But as a fledgling performer in his own right, the clean-cut honky-tonker’s humble approach and conversational croon was increasingly at odds with mainstream country music’s tilt toward variety-show glitz. Upon joining the post-hippie roots-music radicals taking over the Austin scene (and swearing off barbers forevermore), the Texas-born Nelson became an icon of the ’70s outlaw-country movement, favoring a stripped-down style that could both evoke desert-highway vistas (“On the Road Again”) and initiate the most intimate of conversations (“Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain”). But Nelson’s brand of down-home simplicity shouldn’t be confused with dogmatic purism (he’s also no stranger to adult-contemporary crossovers, like his duet with Julio Iglesias, “To All the Girls I've Loved Before”). Rather, he’s always searching for the most direct route to the soul of a song, whether he’s elevating the country standard “Always on My Mind” to the realm of modern hymn, or bringing a wistful, lived-in wisdom to Great American Songbook perennials like “Georgia on My Mind.” In the 21st century, Nelson’s outlaw ethos has continued to manifest itself in all sorts of surprising ways: He’s become America’s most visible pro-marijuana activist and Snoop Dogg’s unlikeliest duet partner.
