It’s amazing that Willie Nelson is still creating music on a regular basis. He keeps putting out new music just about every year. It’s like clock the way new albums come out from this living legend. He’s been doing it since the beginning of the ’60s and he’s still has good as ever.
Here is the title track from his latest album, Band Of Brothers.
Band Of Brothers – Willie Nelson
Here’s what I like about Willie Nelson. He’s not the best singer in the world and his voice has obviously changed over the years, but as soon as you hear his voice you know it’s him. And there is something to be said for that. Willie never really seemed to try to sound like anyone else. He forged his own distinctive voice and there hasn’t been anyone able to copy him for over 50 years.
And he can still play that acoustic guitar as good as anybody. And he can still cover and write a song that is catchy and interesting. The cool thing about this one is that there really aren’t songs like this out there right now. It’s has the classic Willie Nelson sound and feel, but it also sounds really good in terms of modern country music. I think it’s pretty catchy and something you can sing along with.
Willie has been doing it his way for most of his career and it’s amazing that he’s still out there making great music today. You can’t tell him what to do and that’s a good way to live life.
Don’t you think?
