Just in time for Willie Nelson’s 87th birthday on April 29th, his latest release “First Rose of Spring” ushers in the season, and his birthday celebration on April 24th.
The album is produced by Willie’s long-time friend and producer Buddy Cannon. You’l find two new songs written by Willie on the production, plus covers of Chris Stapleton, Toby Keith, and even a Johnny Paycheck classic. Also, there’s a couple of classic/pop standards on the release, which pays homage to 1978’s ‘Stardust’, and other of Nelson’s albums over the years. These classic standards seem to have become Willie’s standard on his works. That’s not a bad thing.
You can pre-order ‘First Rose of Spring’ over several platforms right now.
Here’s the title cut of the album. Enjoy.
