The country music icon will honor legendary American songwriter Harlan Howard. Howard was a longtime inspiration of Nelson's and was famous for coining the now iconic term "Three chords and the truth." The ten songs on the upcoming album will be Wille's unique takes on some of Howards biggest hits.
Today fans got a taste of whats to come with the lead single “Busted” today, which was initially a hit for Johnny Cash with the Carter Family back in 1963, when it peaked at #13 on the country charts. The song even caught the attention of the late great Ray Charles, when it peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Ray and Willie Nelson even teamed up for a live version of it for Ray’s 2005 duets album, Genius & Friends.
I Don’t Know A Thing About Love was produced by Willie’s longtime collaborator Buddy Cannon, and the album art was done by his son, Micah Nelson, in addition to his full band backing him.
We love to see that Willie's talent and passion is still chugging along. Is it March 3rd yet?
