Heroes by Willie Nelson

Heroes is the sixtieth studio album by American country music singer Willie Nelson, released by Legacy Recordings on May 15, 2012.  This great album contains classic country songs, new songs written by Nelson and his son Lukas, and the classic song from Nelson’s repertoire, “A Horse Called Music“. Guest appearances include Lukas NelsonRay PriceMerle HaggardSnoop DoggKris KristoffersonJamey JohnsonBilly Joe Shaver, and Sheryl Crow.  This fourteen track album features such great songs as A Horse Called Music, Roll Me Up, the title track Heroes, Every Time He Drinks He Thinks Of Her and many others including the covers of Just Breathe (made famous by Pearl Jam), The Scientist (made famous by Coldplay) and Tom Waits single Come On Up To The House.  Originally, the album was named after the track Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die but was then changed to Heroes after Nelson and his production team decided that the original name could deter conservative sale outlets.  I was impressed with the songwriting on this album as well as its performance and recording.  This album is still available on CD and digital download from Amazon, Apple Music, and all other music retailers.
