With Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real.
"Before he was one of the most prolific album makers and recognizable figures in popular music, Willie Nelson was a humble songwriter who wrote hits for country stars like Patsy Cline and Faron Young. Nelson soon made his own name covering pop and C&W standards. His dry, wry voice and plaintive, understated delivery eventually helped him reach wider pop audiences. In the 1970s he spearheaded "outlaw" country — the non-Nashville alliance between "redneck" country musicians and "hippie" rock musicians. His stature grew exponentially throughout the 1980s with classic singles like "On the Road Again" and "Always on my Mind," his participation in the supergroup the Highwaymen (with Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings) and the Farm Aid concerts he helped organize to benefit family farmers. Meanwhile, his problems with the Internal Revenue Service and leisure-time marijuana use made Nelson something of an "outlaw" for real — and a counterculture-style hero to many." —Rolling Stone
