Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers by Willie Nelson
Released: Jun 2014
Label: Legacy Recordings
On his first album of (mostly) new material in nearly two decades, the 81-year-old Willie Nelson shows no signs of slowing. Nelson, who co-wrote 8 of the 14 tracks with producer Buddy Cannon, hasn't lost his gift for writing songs that are sharp, biting and funny at just the right moments. On "I Thought I Left You," for example, he shatters the serious, she-left-me-type mood with, "You're like the whooping cough/ I've already had you/ So why don't you get lost." There's plenty more to love, but start with "Crazy Like Me," "The Git Go" (with Jamey Johnson) and "Wives and Girlfriends."
