The great Willie Nelson amazes me, he is now 81 but still going strong, indeed I think he may be immortal as he sings away in a style that would make a lot of younger artistes green with envy. This track is taken from his new album ‘Band of Brothers’. Willie co-wrote quite a few songs that appear on this album, but I believe this one was written by none other than Dennis Morgan.
This is a great Country song that will be bound to be popular with a lot of people. Of course with Willie singing you also have some great guitar playing and even a harmonica. Whilst this is currently being given to us freely to promote the new album it is really a must have to download. Very well produced, catchy, and toe tapping this is something that you will want to listen to again and again, and hopefully the rest of the album as well.
I am a keen Willie Nelson fan and have been since the days of the Outlaws but I am a bit disappointed by this track from his latest album. Until I hear some samples of the other tracks I won't be rushing out to but the album. But it's only my opinion and if I'm expressing my opinion on Willie's albums, then the best one for me is "Across The Borderline", a beautifully sung and played selection of track including some memorable duets with other recording artists such as Bob Dylan, Sinead O'Connor, Bonnie Raitt and others. It is also a beautifully and sympathetically recorder album.
Good song from the veteran Willie Nelson. Standard country music offering but with an ascerbic lyric. Guess we all have a lot of traveling to do. If you like country and WIllie Nelson you will love this track. And an Amazon freebie too !
I don't think Willie can do anything wrong or even badly. he is truly old school......... bring back old school as a lot of modern country is too commercial and generally rubbish. but this is only my opinion
