Willie Nelson

It is interesting to have one legend pay homage to another. Willie Nelson uses the songs of country songwriting legend Cindy Walker to construct this album which will transport the listener to the dusty Old West. Walker's works are made that much more powerful by Nelson's ability to sing like he is reading you a story. Elvis Presley, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Mel Tillis, Ray Charles, and Henry Mancini have recorded versions of Walker's music, but with Willie Nelson's you can really hear the appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of her songs in his voice. Having surrounded himself with a top producer, Fred Foster, and some legendary session musicians, Nelson has recorded one of his better recent albums. He is definitely not slowing down!
