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.
