It’d be sooo great if other established artists used some of their pull to expose people to deserving but less popular bands. Willie Nelson has always been very gracious that way sharing the spotlight any number of different ways. Now he has collaborated with the great trad band Asleep At The Wheel on his upcoming record Willie and the Wheel.
Now I haven’t followed Willie Nelson’s career very closely of late. Still I’m guessing I would have gotten a kick out of all his recent genre jumping. But don’t you think that his return to the music of his childhood sounds just great? Isn’t this where and when he truly belongs. His voice sounds very strong and is a perfect accompaniment to Asleep At The Wheel’s jazzy western swing.
