Willie Nelson, American Country musician, and giant-ass hat-rocker
extraordinaire, has come out with a new album, Heroes.
Here’s a video of him talking about his album and the stages that he went through as he developed him.
While various reviews have said that the album “lacks focus and consistency,” nobody does outlaw-country like Willie Nelson yet. Besides, can you really dislike a man who looks like an old version of Obelix?
On April 20, on Willie Nelson Boulevard outside Austin City Limits Willie Nelson witnessed the unveiling of an eight-foot, one-ton bronze rendering of his likeness. Perhaps because he is too humble to ponder his own achievements, Mr. Nelson, 79, simply said with a smile, “I’ll be stoned 1,000 years.”
Basically, ya’ll gotta listen to this one, whether you’re high, or not.
We’ll have an album review for you soon, but till then, here’s a song to keep you up in smoke. As a special extra, it features vampire hunter Kris Kristofferson.
