Willie Nelson sings about livin’, lovin’ and makin’ music
Band of Brothers
CD $10.99 (Legacy)
The iconic singer-songwriter, 81, sounds as musically wily as ever on these nine all-new co-written originals plus five tunes thoughtfully plucked from the song saddlebags of other artists and writers—including Vince Gill’s “Whenever You Come Around,” and a Billy Joe Shaver tune, “The Git Go,” which becomes a bluesy duet with Jamey Johnson—as he weaves a loose, lively overall theme about life, loving, living and making music with his compadres.
