One would be hard-pressed to name an artist in any genre of music, who is as versatile, talented, and beloved as Willie Nelson. This legend has worked with the greatest country, pop, jazz and R&B stars of our day. His songs have been recorded by such diverse artists as Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Patsy Cline. He sings, performs, acts, organizes and writes. He owns a unique vocal approach, a masterfully understated guitar style, unending charisma, and an outstanding catalogue of recordings.
On this fortunate collection, Columbia includes some of Willie's most memorable recordings, like the rollicking "On The Road," the traditionally Western "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys," the classic "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain," the bluesy "Georgia On My Mind," the exquisite ballad "Always On My Mind," and many more. Once considered a country "outlaw," Willie Nelson is now the epitome of the best country music has to offer.
