Willie Nelson.Band Of Brothers>Out now

Thu May 15, 2014 7:43 am

Willie has released a new song from his forthcoming album Band of Brothers. This song was written during a time that Willie hit a wall from being burnt out with the pangs of road life. The upcoming album will include 14 songs total, 9 of which will be new originals. This will be the largest release of new material from Willie since the 1996 album Spirit.
he sounds in fine voice on this track

Unbelievable... a new album each year! Great to see good ole Willie still going strong at 81.

I'm really looking forward to this album, particularly because there's a good deal of new songs present. But Willie has always been a firm favourite of mine and his albums are always good, often excellent and rarely disappoint.

Got the album today and managed to give it a listen between World Cup games and on first impressions it's a cracker.Willie is in fine voice.His new songs find him in all states of mind from contemplative to humourous to downright horny the dirty old dog ! It can't compare to his glory days but it's as close as we can expect from an 81 yr old.With a mixture of tempos and with some great steel guitar and harmonica as well as Trigger it holds the attention throughout.It has a classic country sound.Willie fans won't be disappointed.

Just listened to the very first track and I must say he sounds mighty fine - and almost not off-beat :P

Looking forward to listen to the complete album. Already liked the first song very, very much.

Entered the Billboard Country album chart at no 1-his first since The Promiseland in 1986.Well done Willie, still achieving at 81.
No 5 in the main album chart too.I know it will drop like a brick after first week sales but still it's something for Willie to be proud of.If he gives a monkeys mind you !

Hopefully he will do a follow up with Buddy Cannon again soon,they made one of Willies finest albums of the last 10 years or so

I just listened to the full album. I have to say it is the best album I have heard from him in quite awhile. I'm a long time fan who has at least 75% of his albums and this one ranks favorably with the best of them. The fact he wrote 9 of the tracks shows that his muse is still there and he still has something to say. Great latter-day effort!

Another album is expected later this year. Doesn't appear to be songs with Cannon and crew but rather his own band: http://www.musictimes.com/articles/6753 ... er-day.htm

I've not known Willie to ever follow up an album with the same group. Seems like he's always moving forward with new collaborations.
