Willie Nelson – Band Of Brothers

It’s a testament to the never-ending popularity of Willie Nelson that this disc has already made a little bit of musical history this week – with its’ debut atop the Billboard Country Albums chart, marking the first time Nelson has been at the top of the list since 1986. Nelson has always been an artist that you absolutely love – or one that drives you crazy with his unique phrasing. And, that’s not a bad thing. It’s a mark of his…

Mary Sarah & Friends – Bridges

So, going by that set of rules, Texas newcomer Mary Sarah must very well be the real deal, right? That answer is positively and unequivocally – yes. On this, the singer’s very first project, Mary…

Willie Nelson – To All The Girls

Starting in 1962 with a song called “Willingly,” Willie Nelson has recorded with more duet partners than just about any other artist. His first duet was with a woman named Shirley Collie, then-wife of Biff Collie, one of Country’s greatest disc jockeys of all time. Since then, just about every major Country (or otherwise) act in the business has cut at least one duet with Willie Nelson. His latest project pairs him with some of the top female voices of music, and the results are pretty much impeccable…

Willie Nelson – Heroes

Even if you are not the biggest fan of his music or not, one has to admire Willie Nelson and his creative spirit. Even as he nears 80 years old, the ‘Red Headed Stranger’ is still out there each year performing and creating. That being said, I think might very well be his best all-around project since 2002’s The Great Divide, which I think is one of his most underrated efforts. This disc is basically a creative effort with son Lukas, who appears on eight tracks…
