Info for A Beautiful Time
Willie Nelson may be turning 89 on April 29th. But as we’ve seen over the last few years, he’s not slowing down any time soon. On April 29th, he will also be releasing his latest record called A Beautiful Time, and with a pretty beautiful album cover of Willie Nelson walking down the main drag of his own Western town called Luck on his ranch just outside of Austin—a brilliant sunset dazzling the sky just behind a hill.
Willie released two albums last year: The Willie Nelson Family comprised of many Gospel standards and other greats from the American songbook, accompanied by members of his family and family band, as well as That’s Life, which was a tribute to Frank Sinatra, and is currently in the running for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album via The Grammy Awards.
But A Beautiful Time will be more of an original album from Willie, with five new songs penned by Nelson with his producer Buddy Cannon, as well as original songs written by others to complete the track list, and a few recognizable covers, most notably “With A Little Help From My Friends” from The Beatles, and Leonard Cohen’s “Tower of Song.”
Songwriter Shawn Camp also contributes a couple of tracks, and Jim “Moose” Brown, Scotty Emerick, and Don Sampson also appear in the songwriting credits for the 14 songs of the Legacy Recordings release. The band for the record includes guitarists Bob Terry and James Mitchell, Jim “Moose” Brown on keyboards, bassist Barry Bales, and drummer Fred Eltringham.
Ahead of the album, Willie Nelson has released the previously unheard song “I’ll Love You Till The Day I Die,” written by Chris Stapleton and Rodney Crowell.
Though every release from Willie Nelson is cherished these days since we still get to share the sweet Earth with him, sometimes the focus of this late career albums has been more retrospective. A Beautiful Time will be one of the more original collections, and so worth paying extra attention to.
Produced by Willie’s longtime musical collaborator Buddy Cannon (who’s co-written six of the album’s new songs, including five with Willie), A Beautiful Time is a fully-realised new studio album showcasing Willie and Trigger (his signature guitar) playing with musicians including Jim “Moose” Brown (B-3 organ, Wurlitzer), Fred Elringham (drums), Barry Bales (upright bass), Bob Terry (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, steel guitar), James Mitchell (electric guitar) and the patented harmonic stylings of Mickey Raphael. Melonie Cannon sings backup on five of the album’s tracks.

With a six-decade career and a catalog of more than 200 albums to his credit, the iconic Texas singer-songwriter Willie Nelsonhas earned a permanent position in pop music’s pantheon with songs combining the sophistication of Tin Pan Alley with the rough-and-tumble grit and emotional honesty of country music. He brought pop and country together on the radio in the early 1960s with unforgettable songs like “Crazy” (Patsy Cline), “Hello Walls” (Faron Young), “Funny How Time Slips Away” (Billy Walker), “Night Life” (Ray Price) and others and, by the mid-1970s, had become a superstar in his own right as a prime mover of a revolutionary and thriving outlaw country music scene. The Red Headed Stranger, Willie’s first album for Columbia Records in 1975, catapulted the artist to the front ranks of popularity, making his a name familiar in country and city households across America and around-the-world.
A seven-time Grammy Award winner, Willie Nelson has received numerous accolades including American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards and others. He is a co-founder of Farm Aid, an annual series of fundraising events which began as an all-star benefit concert in 1985 to raise money for American family farmers. He continues to lobby against horse slaughter and produces his own blend of biodiesel fuel. An old-school road-dog troubadour with new school wheels, Willie plays concerts year-round, tirelessly touring on Honeysuckle Rose III (he rode his first two buses into the ground), taking his music and fans to places that are always worth the ride.
The very first musician to perform on the premiere episode of Austin City Limits in 1974, Willie Nelson was inducted into the inaugural class of the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame by fellow Texan Matthew McConaughey on Saturday, April 26, 2014. “There would be no Austin City Limits without Willie Nelson,” McConaughey told the audience assembled at the University of Texas at Austin, the original home of what is now America’s longest-running televised music program.
Willie Nelson, who turned 81 on April 29/April 30, is an American original, a sublime singer, master tunesmith and outlaw country’s most enduring archetype.
