Willie Nelson - It Always Will Be
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Willie Nelson - It Always Will BeNelson’s as famous for his battles with the taxman and his unrepentant fondness for cannabis as he is for his music. But the Red Headed Stranger’s talents as a songwriter should never be overlooked—after all, he wrote Patsy Cline’s “Crazy.” And his reedy tenor is as recognizable as the late, great Johnny Cash’s booming baritone. Willie’s latest, featuring duets with Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams and his daughter Paula, includes a Tom Waits cover and at least new original classic: the tender, Tex-Mex-tinged title track.
