Willie Nelson
Country Music

[ Decca Music Group / Rounder Records / CD ]

Release Date: Thursday 22 April 2010

Willie Nelson goes back to his roots with a songbook of classic Americana.

'Country Music' was recorded in Nashville, TN and produced by T Bone Burnett. Willie wrote one track on the album, "Man With the Blues" and, with T Bone Burnett, co-arranged three traditional songs, "Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down"; "I Am a Pilgrim"; and "Nobody's Fault But Mine". The album also features many popular old-time / bluegrass / folk songs, such as Ernest Tubb's "Seaman's Blues"; Merle Travis' "Dark as a Dungeon"; and Doc Watson's "Freight Train Boogie".

Willie collaborated with many musicians on 'Country Music', including old-time banjo master, Riley Baugus; double bassist, Dennis Crouch; and T Bone himself - all are players who featured on 'Raising Sand', the 2009 Grammy award-winning "Album of the Year" by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss.
