iTunes Review

Nearing 80 years old, Willie Nelson is at an interesting juncture in his career. He's earned the right to make country music the way he remembers it—with a lilting Texas swing in its step—and he does. Nelson was also the great country artist who never let genres stop him. His Stardust collection made the crossover from country to pop standards feel as natural as breathing. So it really shouldn't be that much of a surprise when Nelson invites his son, Lukas, to sing on the majority of the record (he deserves co-billing), or when he enlists the help of Snoop Dogg and Kris Kristofferson to croon on "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die." Nelson the songwriter and Nelson the interpreter have made him Nelson the legend. No matter who's joining him here or whose song it is, the performances stand on their own; Coldplay's "The Scientist" and Eddie Vedder's "Just Breathe" become every bit Nelson tunes. Fiddles, acoustic guitars, and pedal steel all combine with that iconic voice to make a classic country album. 

Customer Reviews


Incredible! I know it's good when it gives me goosebumps. Chilling! Willie's vocals and lyrics translate into feelings that hit nerves the way piano keys hit notes. My man takes another evolutionary turn and he just keeps gettin' better and knocking' down doors. Mainstream radio just don't get it!

Willie is the King

He's always been my favorite. What a beautiful voice - and he's still got it. Willie, you are still the best! Hopefully this album will spark new Willie fans!

Heroes by Old guy/ old country

I stopped listening to country 10 years ago. Singers that can not sing (live), and overly produced, inane know, the "formula" thing they do today. However, I'm a Willie fan so I decided to check out "Heroes". WOW! I've listened to this cd at least 10 times. It's wonderful! The lyrics, impeccably sung and played melodys combined with great duets from Lucas and all. This cd should be mandatory listening to all of the so called country "artists" currently faking their way through badly written , "sound the same" tunes "stuff" they are putting out. Heroes proves you do not have to overwhelm the audience with so many notes, played simultaneously that you can't discern what's being played on which instrument. It's minilistic (is that a word?) approach is soothing and entertaining as heck. Willie is getting better as he gets older. This album is soooooo good!

As a songwriter and a performer, Willie Nelson played a vital role in post-rock & roll country music. Although he didn't become a star until the mid-'70s, Nelson spent the '60s writing songs that became hits for stars like Ray Price ("Night Life"), Patsy Cline ("Crazy"), Faron Young ("Hello Walls"), and Billy Walker ("Funny How Time Slips Away") as well as releasing a series of records on Liberty and RCA that earned him a small but devoted cult following. During the early '70s, Willie aligned himself...
