We’ve got a few new things for you today in terms of new music releases…first up, Kris Kristofferson has a new album out, Feeling Mortal, and it’s pure classic traditional country. You can’t get much better than a Kris Kristofferson written song! Check out the title track: Feeling Mortal.
Blake Shelton has a new single out called Sure Be Cool If You Did. Lately Blake Shelton can’t disappoint with anything he comes out with and this one is no different.
Emerson Drive also has a new album out called Roll. Lots of uptempo songs on this one with a few ballads thrown in. I’d give She’s My Kind of Crazy, We Are This Town and Love Hangover a listen for sure.
There’s also a compilation album of Tim McGraw duets that just recently came out via Curb Records called Tim McGraw & Friends. It’s got a lot of our favorite duets including Tony Bennett, Faith Hill, Jo Dee Messina and Randy Travis. This is a good one to get if you didn’t end up getting these duets off some of these other artists albums.
What else are yall listening to these days? There’s definitely some great albums coming out in February that I can’t wait to listen to!
Willie Nelson has a new album out today entitled “Heroes”, and he doesn’t disappoint. If you are a true Willie fan, you’ll love a ton of these songs. His son, Lukas Nelson, cowrote and performs with him on many of the songs. Lukas sounds very much like his father and compliments the songs perfectly.
As always, Willie Nelson duets with some big names and is not afraid to cover popular songs. You’ll see Willie’s rendition of Coldplay’s The Scientist on this album. And you’ll also hear Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Billy Joe Shaver and Ray Price on this album.
My favorites after first listen are The Scientist, A Horse Called Music, My Window Faces the South.
At 79, Willie Nelson shows no signs of slowing down and I like it! It’s also a great introduction to his son Lukas and his sound.
What are you listening to? Will you be checking out this Willie album?
Lots of stuff on this week featuring just about anybody you’d ever want to see. I would like to recommend the Who Do You Think You Are with Tim McGraw if you haven’t already seen it, it’s quite interesting his family tree… And I’ll of course be watching all of the Behind the Video’s on GAC.
